Rob Holding takes dig at Deeney after Arsenal win



Rob Holding

Arsenal have earned another three points against Watford in the 2-0 win on Saturday.

The win by the Unai Emery side makes it their 5th consecutive Premier League win of the season.

The North London side had to wait until the last 10 minutes before taking the day. All thanks to an own goal from Craig Cathcart before Mesut Ozil scored his second of the season.

The win against Watford for Arsenal defender Rob Holdings was more about taking a dig at Watford striker Troy Deeney.

He will never forget Arsenal’s loss against the Hornets at Vicarage Road last season, which Deeney reacted to by publicly criticising former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger’s side, suggesting they lacked ‘cojones’.

Saturday’s win is the day for Holdings to hit back at the striker by claiming his side now have a stronger mentality under a new manager.

Holding said his side had prepared for Deeney and were mentally ready to battle him.

He said his side were already tired in the last minutes but still stood because of their new mental strength under the Spanish manager.

The impressive defender said the manager had told them of his winning mentality and wants the players to adopt it.
