PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Mikel Arteta has provided an update on the fitness of Rob Holding after the England international was taken off during Arsenal's 1-0 defeat to Manchester City at the Emirates. With around ten minutes to play the Englishman was caught on the head accidentally by the studs of Joao Cancelo after going in for a tackle. The Gunners then took him off for their third substitution of the game. This therefore raised some confusion when they also brought on Dani Ceballos for Mohamed Elneny a little later on. However, Arteta has now explained that his side were using the Premier League's new concussion sub protocol which permits teams an extra change in the event of a head injury.

It is unclear as of yet if this will keep him out of the Gunners' Europa League round of 32 second leg against Benfica in Greece on Thursday. The injury was an unfortunate end to the game for Holding who recovered well after being at fault inside the first two minutes as Raheem Sterling rose to head in what turned out to be the winning goal. Arteta will hope the 25-year-old isn't out for too long as he has been a mainstay at the back for Arsenal this season, helping them to achieve the third best defensive record in the league.
