Arsenal Legend Gives Shocking Prediction On Star's Future

Arsenal legend Martin Keown has hailed the outstanding performance of Rob Holding while also expressing fear over the future of Calum Chambers.

Holding who joined the Gunners from Bolton in the summer was at the heart of defence alongside Chambers in their first game against Liverpool but the latter was unable to make the lineup in subsequent games before he was eventually loaned out to Middlesbrough.

In Keown's view, Chambers might find it hard breaking into the team again since Holding is doing a very good job in his position.

“Holding looks like a good acquisition because they’ve only paid £2.5m for him and he looks solid,” Keown told FourFourTwo .

“But I just feel that when you’re a central defender in that position, it’s like goalkeepers – do we play young goalkeepers, do we play young central defenders?

“As soon as it goes wrong there’s suddenly a lot of pressure being put on those individuals.

“Holding handled it well in the first match, thrown in at the deep end.

“You expect Chambers to have coped better because he’d been around longer, and maybe that’s why they’ve shipped him out. Maybe they feel he hasn’t developed.”
