[Match Highlights] Arsenal 3-1 Brentford - All The Goals & Best Bits

Unai Emery wants Rob Holding to fight for a regular starting spot

Unai Emery wants Rob Holding to fight for a regular starting spot

Arsenal will host Brentford at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday in the third round of the League Cup.

"I am very happy individually with the player", Emery said after the game.

"Danny Welbeck gives us his commitment every day". When he's playing with a performance like today he's helping the team and it gives us more [choices for the first 11] in the next matches.

Emery is aware of Welbeck's contract running down and is adamant he wants him to stay.

'There are three things when we are speaking about an individual.

West Ham end Chelsea's 100 percent record with gritty draw
Pedro suffered a bad collision during the Europa League game vs PAOK and will surely not take part in the West Ham game. Centre-back Antonio Rudiger was forced off with an injury in the second half, as he started to hobble around the pitch.

There have been moments to savour, such as his first hat-trick for the club in the Champions League win over Galatasaray back in 2014 and the FA Cup final win over Chelsea in 2017, but his move down south has generally not given Welbeck the satisfaction he was seeking. I know they are in the previous year of their contracts and they are speaking with the club but for me the focus is only on the performance in each match. The 27-year-old has scored four goals in six appearances for his club this season.

'The performance and the commitment of the player is very high and also Danny Welbeck's situation is one thing for the club and for them'.

He added: "For Saturday [against Watford] he is another player I can try to help in the first XI".

It was straightfoward for Arsenal up to that point - but Brentford made them sweat after the restart. "I thought we put up a good fight in the second half, but ultimately they just had more quality than us".
