While Olivier Giroud celebrated his 100th goal in Arsenal colours on Thursday night, Rob Holding was toasting his first competitive strike in our 4-2 win over BATE Borisov.

The 22-year-old defender found the net in the 25th minute, turning the ball home from close range after Per Mertesacker had got his head to a corner.

Rob spoke to Arsenal.com post-match – and this is what he said:

on how it felt to score his first Arsenal goal…
It’s a proud moment to score my first competitive goal. I got one against Chivas last year on the tour, so to get my first competitive one I’m over the moon and the celebration showed it.

on the goal itself…
I just went round the back post. Per got the flick on and it just fell in front of me. It was hard to miss!

on saying off-camera that he should’ve had two goals…
Yes, I should’ve had two! With the left-footed one I just couldn’t get my foot wrapped around it, to bring it in. It hit the post but I’m sure I’ll get another one, one…
