Arsenal pulled off a superb win against Liverpool this evening as they came from behind to win 2-1 and Gunners fans were loving the performance of Rob Holding at the back for them.
Holding was in the back three at the expense of Shkrodan Mustafi and delivered a fine display against the ever-tricky Sadio Mane.
The big defender has been in and out of the picture for most of the season but the 24-year-old showed tonight that he might well belong in the back three more regularly heading into the future.
Arsenal looked more assured with him next to David Luiz and it will be interesting to see if Mikel Arteta sticks with the former Bolton man from now on.
Gunners fans, then, were suitably impressed on Twitter following the game. Indeed, a number of supporters were quick to point out just how good Holding had been tonight.
With that, here’s a look at just what some Arsenal fans had to say about Rob Holding’s display against Liverpool.

Rob Holding looks like he's here to show Mane and Liverpool he's not to be pushed around #ARSLIV

Love Rob Holding. He’s got that old school attitude. Loves a battle. He needs a run of games with a settled selection alongside him. Believe he can be a great defender for AFC!!
