Birthday boy Holding elated with Arsenal win

Rob Holding was delighted to spend his 21st birthday winning a football match with Arsenal.

The defender played a full 90 minutes on the night of his milestone birthday as the Gunners easily beat Nottingham Forest 4-0 in the third round of the EFL Cup.

It has been a big few months for Holding, who joined Arsenal from Bolton Wanderers in the summer, and he was thrilled to contribute to an impressive victory with another assured performance in central defence.
