Mikel Arteta will be ‘slaughtering’ one Arsenal ace in dressing room


Robbie Keane has told Sky Sports that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will be fuming with ace Rob Holding for getting too emotionally involved against Tottenham on Thursday night. Spurs secured a hugely impressive 3-0 win.

In what was one of the most-important North London clashes in years, the race for the top four on a knife-edge worth just four points. But a Harry Kane brace and another for Son Heung-min saw Spurs reduce that to one.

With Spurs leading 1-0, defender Holding – who was in the side due to a recent injury to Ben White – was getting into a tussle with Son Heung-min. Already on a yellow, he decided to block Son’s path to a pass.

Holding was shown a second yellow and it instantly put Spurs in the driving seat, scoring a second soon after through Kane. Any half-time plans from Arteta were undone when Son got his goal just after the restart.

Speaking after the match, Spurs icon Keane responded to Arteta defending his playing in his post-match comments – as saying that he will be fuming with £40,000-a-week (Spotrac) Holding behind the scenes, for his red card.

“In the dressing room, he will be absolutely slaughtering Holding. I know, in front of the cameras, he will be protecting his players. But in the dressing room, he will be fuming with his players,” Keane told Sky Sports.

Keane: Arteta will be fuming with Arsenal ace Holding

Arteta did come out and defend his players despite some questionable decision making during the game – which contributed to the 3-0 loss. Mostly, from the defenders that had come into the side amid their injury issues.

Cedric Soares nudged Son for the penalty and it was an easy decision. Holding was in a trap too easily with Son. The latter came out on top, with the defender seeing red. Arsenal made it easy for Tottenham.
