Centre-back Holding happy Arsenal resume 2020-21 Premier League season with a win at Fulham.
Arsenal defender Rob Holding was pleased with how Mikel Arteta’s side beat Fulham 3-0 on Saturday.
The 24-year-old says it is vital the Gunners have started the 2020-21 Premier League season in flying colours.
Goals from Alex Lacazette, Gabriel, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang helped Arsenal secure three points at Craven Cottage.
And, after the game, the Englishman gave his verdict on the 3-0 victory as Arsenal.com quoted: "Exactly, to win the clean sheet is always nice. We wanted to make a little bit of a statement in the first game of the season.
"The first one to kick us off so... other teams will be watching and will see the result before they went in, so to get a good 3-0 win away from home is a good start.
On new signings Willian and Gabriel, he replied: "I know Willian from when we've played Chelsea. I know he's got all the ability so it's nice to have him in your team. He proved today why we signed him and Gabriel was solid as a rock. He won everything aerially and finished off with a nice goal as well."
Speaking of Arsenal's summer momentum that helped them win the FA Cup and Community Shield, he said: "For sure, yes. Finishing the season with a trophy and starting this one with the Community shield win... We've got a load of confidence coming in and now we want to have a good run and go for it."
