Arsenal star Rob Holding was stretchered off with a serious-looking injury in the first half of Arsenal’s clash with Manchester United.
Holding was handed his ninth Premier League start on the bounce after impressing for Arsenal in recent weeks but the 23-year-old defender’s match was cut short on Wednesday evening.
While the scoreline was 1-1, Holding went down in a heap following a challenge with Marcus Rashford and looked in some pain as Arsenal’s medical staff carried him off the pitch.
United supporters close to the touchline applauded Holding as he was taken down the tunnel in the 36th minute of a feisty encounter at Old Trafford.

Unai Emery replaced Holding with Stephan Lichtsteiner and the Swiss slotted in alongside Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi for the remainder of the first half. Holding has been instrumental to Arsenal’s recent form and Emery will be nervously awaiting an update on the defender’s injury.
