On Sunday Arsenal will play their 5th game in just 17 days and although we have drawn 3 of them there is no sign of us flagging just yet, and Emery has been rotating his pawns like a grandmaster. So when Wolves come to the Emirates tomorrow we will see another raft of changes to the personnel on the pitch, but Rob Holding, who has played the full 90 minutes in four of those matches, just wants to keep going without a rest, which is quite lucky as we have been struggling badly with defensive injuries lately.
Holding told Arsenal.com: “The past three weeks have been a game, two days break, a game, two days, so it is just about getting a recovery session done, getting yourself feeling up to scratch to go again on Sunday,”
“There’s definitely momentum about the team, we’ve rested some players who will probably come in at the weekend and we’ll go again and hopefully get the win. I want to play every minute that I can. I am feeling fit and healthy. I just want to get as much game-time as I can.”
The ex-Bolton man has been a revelation since coming into the first team and I think Emery now regards him as a mainstay of the side. He is young, and like Guendouzi, keen to play in every single game.
Should he now be our Number One centre-back?
