It’s been a tough week for Arsenal and it looks as if that won’t be changing any time soon.
The Gunners have lost two matches this week with the club’s makeshift defence seriously contributing to both of those defeats.
Rob Holding will miss the rest of the season and today, the club confirmed that injuries to two other defenders will see them miss the next few weeks.
Hector Bellerin is set to miss another two weeks of training while Shkodran Mustafi won’t return for another week.

Sead Kolasinac is also a doubt and is being assessed ahead of Saturday’s match against Burnley.
It’s a dire situation for the Arsenal defence right now. The Gunners are missing a number of key players and this makeshift defence is costing matches for the club. It could not come at a worse time with the busy festive period but hopefully, the club will manage.
