Watch: Rob Holding goes on Ronaldinho-esque dribble in Arsenal win
Arsenal opened the new Premier League season with a comprehensive 3-0 win at Fulham on Saturday lunchtime – but the real story was Rob Holding briefly transforming into Ronaldinho.
The Gunners’ pre-match preparations could have gone better, with Dani Ceballos and Eddie Nketiah involved in an angry shoving match after a game of rondo gone wrong, but it certainly didn’t seem to have a lasting effect out on the pitch.
Indeed, Mikel Arteta’s side took the lead within eight minutes when Alexandre Lacazette tapped in. Debutant Gabriel and everyone’s first Fantasy Football pick, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, added second-half goals to complete a fine afternoon’s work, with Willian claiming two assists.
But the Man of the Match award should clearly go to Holding after a run early into the second half which the great Ronaldinho would have been proud of.
Holdinho? Robaldinho? No?
