Holding admits Arsenal players are letting fans down after Spurs loss

The Gunners were beaten 2-0 by Spurs on Sunday as goals from Heung-min Son and Harry Kane sent Tottenham back to the top of the Premier League.

Arsenal, however, are now 15th in the table and this is their worst start to a top-flight campaign since 1981.

And defender Holding said: “It is frustrating. It is a record that you don’t want to be a part of. 

“We are frustrated as players and we are letting the fans down. We need to change that, win some games and put that to bed.

“Obviously their first goal was a great finish by Son and the second goal they caught us on the break.

“They took their chances and that’s the story of the game. No matter how many crosses we put in, if we don’t get on the end of it and put it in the back of the net, it is pointless at the end of the day.”

“Finding the back of the net just seems to be a problem at the moment, but hopefully there is going to be a bit of luck to change that. Hopefully the goals will start to come,” Holding added.

“We are getting the chances, it is just putting them away. Maybe the first goal we get will just be a bit of a deflection or a trickle into the net and bit of luck on our side.

“Then hopefully the confidence will be there to carry on and score some more goals. But we just need that little bit of luck to put one in the back of the net.

“We have just got to, in training, keep creating chances and taking them – and be confident. We have got to give the strikers some confidence to put the ball in the back of the net and hopefully we can a get goals at the weekend.

“I think because we are struggling for goals, we are pushing and sometimes you get countered on. It is about controlling that counter whilst we are attacking. I think as soon as we get that goal we won’t be chasing it as much. We just seem to be chasing them to score a goal.”
