is adamant that Arsenal are looking up the Premier League table.

“It is a massive confidence boost for us,”

“Obviously we went through that really rough patch, but as soon as we got a win it gave us a lift.

“Now we’ve got another win and hopefully now we can go on a bit of a run, pick up points and climb up the table.

“Fingers crossed we can climb the league and get back into European places and push on.”

Looking into the Brighton game in more detail, Holding said an extra day off benefitted the Gunners.

“I think our last couple of games when we have lost, we have had so many attempts and not scored,”

“If we have two touches in the box (in the first half) and still win, I’ll take that all day.

“To be fair, Brighton had it tough. I think they had 48 hours in between their games. We had that extra day to recover, which helped.”
