The right CB is actually a bit of a worry despite all the defenders we have. Like you I still wouldn`t want to see Holding as a mainstay on the team. Mustafi still injured and looks likely to be sold and Saliba will need time. Chambers also just back from a long injury and is only marginally better than Holding in my opinion. Luiz, Tierney and Gabriel are probably our three best defenders but can`t play together.People actually think Holding is playing well?! He was good against Fulham. Liability. Sadly, it looks as if he will be staying.
So he is playing well then? At the current time. Mistake aside, he was decent enough against West ham as well.
This, plus the fact that we didn't have a midfielder who would collect the ball from defenders, which is just as important as having a CB with composure on the ball.It's partially on Arteta to let the teamplay such forced build-up play. The triangle in the box with Luiz Leno and Holding during a GK makes no sense. All three can't deal with it.
A proper ball-playing CB is so important for that and we don't seem to have one.
That being said he was decent defensively despite the suspect moment where he miscontrolled the ball on the edge of the box.
