According to WhoScored, the 25-year-old has made 17 starts and one substitute appearance in the Premier League for the Gunners so far this season, providing one assist in the process.

The English defender has also played once in the Europa League for the North London club this campaign, according to WhoScored.

The Gunners are aiming to finish in the top four of the Premier League table and are also in the knockout stages of the Europa League.

For Arsenal to achieve their objectives this season, Holding will have to be on top of his game throughout.
