Rob Holding is delighted that Arsenal managed to keep a clean sheet away against Leicester City this evening, as the Gunners went home with a 0-0 draw.

Arsene Wenger's men shipped four goals last weekend at the Emirates Stadium when they lost their opening Premier League game 4-3 to Liverpool.

The contest at the King Power Stadium was short on drama, but Leicester did feel they had good shouts for two penalties, neither of which were given.

One came at the death when Hector Bellerin was accused of bringing down Ahmed Musa in the penalty area, but the referee was not interested in awarding a spot-kick as it finished 0-0.

For Holding, Arsenal keeping a clean sheet after last weekend was important.


"We wanted a clean sheet after conceding four goals last week", Holding said on BT Sport.

"It was vital.

"Hopefully next week we can build on this, score some goals and win a game."

Holding also believes that Musa's penalty appeal was rightfully waved away, with the Leicester man looking for it.

"I think he went down hoping for it. I think it was the right decision", the Arsenal defender added.

The Gunners now have one point from their opening two Premier League matches.
