Arsenal fans in meltdown over what Rob Holding did before Gabriel Magalhaes’ debut goal

Arsenal fans have taken to social media and reacted to Gabriel Magalhaes’ debut goal.

The Brazilian, who joined the club from Lille for £25m this summer, was given his first start in Gunners colours in the opening game of the 2020/21 Premier League season against Fulham.

Named in the starting line-up in a back three alongside Rob Holding and Kieran Tierney, the 22-year-old did have a nervous moment early on and had to be rescued by Bernd Leno.

But he has grown into the game since.

With the visitors leading at the break thanks to Alexandre Lacazette’s goal, Gabriel opened his account and doubled the Gunners’ lead soon after the restart as he steered Willian’s corner home.

Although, much of the reaction has centred around what happened before the goal.

Holding channelled his inner-Ronaldinho to juggle the ball and slip in Lacazette who then forced the corner from which Gabriel made it 2-0.

And it’s safe to say Arsenal fans loved what Holding did.
