Update on Rob Holding

Rob Holding

Further to the injury sustained during our match at Manchester United on Wednesday night, we can confirm that Rob Holding has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee.

Rob will undergo surgery to repair this in the coming days. The rehabilitation process is expected to take between six to nine months.
 
Everyone at the club will now be working as hard as we can to ensure Rob is back on the pitch as soon as possible.

Player of the Month - November 2018

It’s your chance to vote for your Player of the Month for November - and you could even win the chance to present the award.

Lucas Torreira's outstanding start to life in England continued as he played a key role in our draws with Liverpool and Wolves, and our victory at Bournemouth.

Bernd Leno also continued the impress, making four key saves in our 1-1 draw with Wolves before clawing an 89th-minute header away in the win at the Vitality Stadium.

Will Alex Iwobi get your vote? The Nigeria international laid on an assist for Alex Lacazette in the draw against Liverpool and delivered an inch-perfect through ball at Bournemouth in the build-up to our winner.

Rob Holding has had a fine month too, impressing at the heart of the defence as he plays with increasing authority as a mainstay of the backline.

Have your say below and remember to fill in your contact information for a chance of winning two tickets and presenting the award before a home game at Emirates Stadium.
