Arsenal manager Unai Emery has confirmed that his side has been hit by a new injury blow after the draw against Manchester United in the Premier League on Wednesday.
The Gunners travelled to Manchester on Wednesday on the back of a long unbeaten run in all competitions.
Sunday’s 4-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates stadium saw many people deem Arsenal as the favourites to beat Jose Mourinho’s side.
However, it did not go so well for the Gunners who had to settle for a 2-2 draw after giving up the lead on two occasions, immediately after scoring.
Matters did get even more frustrating for Unai Emery who lost important centre-back Rob Holding to an injury.
The young defender has been a regular in the Gunners’ starting eleven this season and in his post-match interview, Emery confirmed his fears over Holding’s injury.
“[It was] the worst news for us,” the Arsenal manager said after the game
“Rob Holding, we are going to wait for the doctors, but it is a big injury. It’s his knee.”
Arsenal dropped out of the top four on Wednesday, due to Tottenham’s comfortable victory over Southampton at home.
