Arsenal defender Rob Holding carried off on a stretcher after serious-looking knee injury

The English defender, 23, was replaced by Stephan Lichtsteiner after 36 minutes of the clash against Manchester United.

Holding clutched his left leg as he fell to the ground after a collision with Marcus Rashford.

Medics checked him over on the side of the pitch before the decision was made for Unai Emery to replace him.

A crowd of Manchester United supporters sitting close to the touchline gave the 23-year-old a round of applause as he left the pitch.

Holding made an encouraging start to the clash, but the score was locked at 1-1 when he was hauled off.

Shkodran Mustafi opened the scoring after 26 minutes before Anthony Martial levelled the scoring four minutes later.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 live, ex-Leicester City star Robbie Savage predicted that Holding suffered ligament damage.

He said: "It looks like knee ligament damage and the medical team were possibly doing tests on the side of the field.

"He stood up and was in a lot of pain. It is a shame because he has been playing well."
