Arsenal finally confirm injury concern for first-team star
Arsenal have finally confirmed that Rob Holding has been struggling with a knee problem which has kept him out of action over the past few weeks.
Holding had been fancied to feature regularly for the Gunners after the international break but that has not been the case with him failing to even make the matchday squad.
In the past few weeks, there have been no updates with regards to the situation of Holding but the club's official website has now revealed that a bruised knee was the reason behind his absence.
It is added that the centre-back will be assessed ahead of tonight's Premier League clash against West Ham United and it remains to be seen whether he makes his comeback.
Meanwhile, Dani Ceballos remain the only player, who is unavailable for the derby as he continues to recover from a hamstring problem. He is expected to return to training by mid-December and could feature before the end of the year.
