Rob Holding nutmegs Aubameyang: Arsenal recently posted a video of the training session where the Arsenal defender nutmegged Aubameyang.
Arsenal have been in fine form under Unai Emery. Since the defeat to Chelsea back in August, the Gunners have embarked on a 17-match unbeaten run so far. Unai Emery’s side faced a slump in form in the Premier League, however, but came back to winning ways last weekend.
Arsenal slipped to 5th position after three successive draws in the league to Crystal Palace, Liverpool and Wolves, but picked up pace with a win against Bournemouth.
The side is now only one point behind Sarri’s Chelsea, who suffered a 3-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur. Interestingly, Arsenal face their North London rivals this weekend, and a win would bring them level on points with Tottenham.
The spirits in the Arsenal camp are justifiably high, and Arsenal players seem to enjoy their training sessions. In one such rondo session, Rob Holding nutmegged Aubameyang, and his reaction is indeed priceless.
Rob Holding nutmegs Aubameyang:
The Arsenal defender cheekily nutmegged Aubameyang during the rondo session in training, and it was immediately followed by deafening roars from the players.
However, Aubameyang didn’t exactly look nonplussed with being nutmegged, and instead looked more excited than Holding!
The striker came to Holding and hugged him, before resuming with the rondo session. A few seconds later, he high-fived the defender again.
He took to Instagram to express his reaction to Holding’s skills.
“Sometimes maybe good sometimes maybe sh*t !!!🤬🤯😂😂😂😂 well done @rholding95 when it comes from you no problem I accept it. What a 🥜 👏🏽👏🏽 #A⚡️,” Aubameyang wrote.
Here’s the video:
Arsenal will take on Vorskla in the Europa League on Thursday. There had been doubts over the possibility of the game taking place due to political unrest in Ukraine, but it was reported yesterday that the game has been shifted to Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, following the implementation of Martial Law in the country.
