Arsenal still sit in first in the Premier League table with nine games remaining. All season the title has seemed to be the Gunners’ destiny.
3 key players for Arsenal’s nine-game title run
As the club approaches glory three unsung heroes have emerged as vital.
1. Rob Holding
The English centre-back has struggled for game time this season. However, in what appeared to be a nightmare evening, William Saliba and Takehiro Tomiyasu suffered season-altering injuries against Sporting CP at the Emirates.
While Saliba may be able to work their way back to star quality this season, Tomiyasu has been ruled out for the rest of the campaign. Holding got his first start of the Premier League season against Crystal Palace before the March international break and has performed well since coming into the side.
Although some fans were worried about losing Saliba’s composure, dominance, and pace in the backline, Holding has fitted in tremendously. The level of the team has unquestionably been maintained, and massive credit is due to Arsenal’s number 16. Holding will be of indescribable importance as Arsenal head towards the title.
