Rob Holding believes Arsenal can keep up with the the Premier League front-runners after their impressive fight-back against Liverpool on Saturday.
Holding was one of the Arsenal’s best players on the pitch during 1-1 draw against the Reds and produced arguably his best performance for the Gunners since their FA Cup triumph against Chelsea in 2017.
He helped to keep Liverpool’s attacking triumvirate of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firminho quiet during important stages of the match with calmness and authority on the pitch.
The Gunners currently trail leaders Manchester City by six points and when Holding was asked about the Gunners title hopes, he feels that if they keep up their impressive mentality they have shown thus far, then anything is possible come the end of the season.
He also believes that the Gunners new-found belief is helping them pick up points that they would have lost last season.
“There’s a really good team chemistry here and a winning mentality,” he said to Arsenal.com.
“We’re not losing and we’ll keep fighting until the end. We never give up, we’ll keep going and get what we deserve.
“It’s a competitive league. Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool have all had flying starts and we’re right on their tails, so we’ve just got to keep ticking away with the points and you never know what can happen further on in the season.”
