Could Chambers and Holding be future for Arsenal and England?

Calum Chambers and Rob Holding put in an impressive display last night to deny West Ham, but could the Arsenal duo become the future partnership for both club and country?

The Gunners beat West Ham 1-0 last night to book their place in the semi-final of the Carabao Cup, and whilst they were lacking in attack, the defence has had its praises sung.

Does Gibbs deserve more credit for role in new Arsenal formation?

Under Arsene Wenger’s revamped regime, Arsenal have finally changed the system pretty much for the first time since 1996. Arsenal have changed their formation from a classic 442 to more of a 4231 over the years, but our current three at the back system looks revolutionary for the Gunners.

‘Holding better than Gabriel and Mustafi’ claims Arsenal legend

Ian Wright believes that Arsenal defender Rob holding deserves to be ahead of both Shkodran Mustafi and Gabriel Paulista.

There are a number of selections which pick themselves but there are also a number of question marks having over certain roles, so we thought we’d take a closer look.

Arsenal risking too much with complete back four change?

Arsene Wenger has already given us some advance warning about what sort of Arsenal team we are likely to see lined up against tonight’s visitors to the Emirates stadium for the quarter-final of the EFL cup, as reported on the Arsenal website.

Arsenal injury problems eased by major Bellerin boost

I know that the Arsenal squad does still contain the France international right back Matthieu Debuchy, as the pictures on the Arsenal website of the players training before the Burnley match reminded us, while Rob Holding the young summer signing from Bolton Wanderers has played in the position as well as his more usual central defensive role.
