Rob Holding delivered probably the most eye-catching moment of skill from our opening-day win at Fulham.

The centre back was mainly concerned with preserving our clean sheet but he showed the other side of this game too, going on a run that featured four keepy-ups and then a perfect pass to Alex Lacazette.
After the game Rob gave his verdict on our 3-0 win.
on three points and a clean sheet...
Exactly, to win the clean sheet is always nice. We wanted to make a little bit of a statement in the first game of the season. The first one to kick us off so... other teams will be watching and will see the result before they went in, so to get a good 3-0 win away from home is a good start.
on Willian and Gabriel...
I know Willian from when we've played Chelsea. I know he's got all the ability so it's nice to have him in your team. He proved today why we signed him and Gabriel was solid as a rock. He won everything aerially and finished off with a nice goal as well.
on summer momentum...
For sure, yes. Finishing the season with a trophy and starting this one with the Community shield win... We've got a load of confidence coming in and now we want to have a good run and go for it.
