Arsenal's Rob Holding to miss six to nine months with ruptured ACL in left knee

Arsenal defender Rob Holding will miss six to nine months after he ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee against Manchester United.

Holding had to be carried off on a stretcher during Wednesday's 2-2 draw at Old Trafford, and the club said on Friday that he will need surgery to repair the ligament damage.

The estimated timeline means Holding could be back to full fitness during preseason ahead of the 2019-20 campaign, although a nine-month recovery would mean he misses the start...

Arsenal's Unai Emery: Rob Holding's injury could be 'big' but hopeful for Aaron Ramsey

Manchester United and Arsenal played out an entertaining draw at Old Trafford, with Jesse Lingard scoring an equaliser for the hosts 74 seconds after the Gunners had regained the lead.

Arsenal coach Unai Emery fears that centre-back Rob Holding suffered "a big injury" in the 2-2 draw against Manchester United on Wednesday, but hailed his team's fighting spirit despite giving up two equalizers.

Holding had to be carried off on a stretcher in the first half after injuring his knee in a tackle near the sideline, and Emery indicated that the 23-year-old could be facing a lengthy layoff.

"The worst for us today was the news with Rob Holding. We are going to wait for what the doctor...


Arsenal defender Rob Holding signs new long-term contract

Arsenal centre-back Rob Holding has signed a long-term contract extension with the club.

Holding was already under contract until 2020 after joining the club from Bolton Wanderers two years ago but was rewarded with a new deal on Tuesday.

Arsenal did not disclose the length of the deal but said in a statement they "look forward to his continued contribution in the coming years."

Holding quickly established himself in the first team in his debut season and started in the FA Cup final win over Chelsea.


As Arsenal prepare for overhaul, which players will stay or go?

Arsenal's squad could face a big -- and according to some, much needed -- overhaul this summer with the arrival of a new manager. Whoever takes up Arsene Wenger's position will have some big decisions to make on which players to keep and which to sell as he tries to the Gunners back into title contenders.

Those decisions will, in part, be based on what type of system the new manager has in mind and which new signings he brings in during the transfer window. But here's a prediction of which Arsenal...

Henrikh Mkhitaryan's Arsenal teammates struggle to spell his name

Henrikh Mkhitaryan's new Arsenal teammates have learned quickly how to play alongside the Armenian midfielder.

Learning how to spell his name, though, is a bit more tricky.

Rob Holding and Ainsley Maitland-Niles both failed miserably at that task when put to the test by Per Mertesacker in a video to help launch a new "Word Match" game in the Junior Gunners app.

Despite Mertesacker's best attempts to help out, neither Holding nor Maitland-Niles could figure out just where to play the H in the Armenian's...

Arsenal wanted to prove Watford's Troy Deeney wrong - Rob Holding

Arsenal centre-back Rob Holding says the Gunners were determined to prove Troy Deeney wrong in their 3-0 win over Watford, and that the striker's disparaging comments were "definitely in the back of our minds."

Arsenal avenged a 2-1 defeat at Watford in October, after which Deeney had said Arsenal's players lacked "cojones" and weren't "up for it."

Deeney had to eat those words after missing a penalty on Sunday that would have given Watford hope at 2-0, and Holding admitted that the Hornets striker's...
