Why Rob Holding is missing Arsenal’s meeting with Norwich

Arsenal vs Norwich

Arsenal are set to play host to Norwich City in a Premier League meeting shortly.

The Gunners head into the tie in simply awful form, having failed to score a single goal or pick up a single point in their opening three outings of the 2021/22 Premier League season.

In Arsenal’s defence, however, the Gunners have had some injury/covid issues and have also had to already face Chelsea and Manchester City this term.

Vs Norwich, however, Mikel Arteta and co. will have little room for excuses as the Canaries have also been pretty poor this term, picking up no points and scoring just one goal.

Why Holding vs missing vs Norwich

Ahead of kick-off at the Emirates, both sides would release their starting line-ups an hour before kick-off.

Arsenal’s starting eleven was pretty strong, with Ben White and Gabriel returning at the heart of defence and new signing Takehiro Tomiyasu handed his first start for the club.

Emile Smith Rowe and Thomas Partey would find themselves on the bench on Saturday, but there was one noticeable absentee from the entire matchday squad in the form of Rob Holding.

An explanation for the defender’s absence has been provided by Arsenal though, with Holding out due to a bruised knee:
