Unai Emery has tinkered with his side since joining in the summer but has found success recently after switching into a back three, with Holding playing a key role in that transition.

Rob Holding says Arsenal can finish in the top four this season

Rob Holding says Arsenal can finish in the top four this season Arsenal centre-back Rob Holding believes a top-four finish is on the cards this season. Unai Emery’s side won 2-1 away to Bournemouth on Sunday, as they came through another Premier League test with flying colours. The victory keeps Arsenal just a point behind fourth-place Chelsea, and unbeaten in 17 matches, as the league table begins to take shape. Holding was again impressive at the heart of the defence and he told talkSPORT that securing Champions League football ahead of next season is more than possible: “We’ve had tough games here [Vitality Stadium] and when they scored seconds before half-time we could have put our heads down and came out in the second-half not at it.” “We put it behind us though and went again and we have been strong in the second-half this season so we knew we’d get goals.” “You’ve got Manchester City and Liverpool at the top who are very strong but if we can keep chipping away and get the points we need then I feel we could be up there [top four].” “We never give up and never stop trying but I think tactically we’re stronger and we’re a bit more organised this season.” A mouthwatering north London derby awaits on Sunday afternoon, in another vital league clash. Arsenal know that a win over Tottenham will take them above their bitter rivals on goal difference. While Manchester City and Liverpool are looking nailed-on to finish in the top four, there could be a real scrap for the remaining two Champions League places.

Jack Wilshere could miss rest of the season with injury.
West Ham are worried that Jack Wilshere could miss the remainder of the season with injury, with the former Arsenal man set to miss the entire Festive period. The Mirror report that the midfielder is set to be out for five weeks, and will miss all of West Ham’s games over the Christmas period. However, other reports from Sportsbible say that West Ham are worried that if Wilshere does not recover after five weeks he may need more surgery, potentially putting him out for the remainder of the Premier League season. Wilshere has had constant trouble with injuries throughout his career, and has again run into trouble with them at West Ham. Losing the former Arsenal man would be a huge blow for the Hammers, especially with Manuel Lanzini and Andriy Yarmolenko both out long-term with injuries. West Ham are coping for now however, with the Hammers completing their fourth win on the trot at the weekend by beating Fulham.
