Rob Holding 23, was replaced by Stephan Lichtsteiner after 36 minutes of the clash with Marcus Rashford which saw England under 23 defender stretcher off after appearing to injure his left knee.

Medics checked him over on the side of the pitch before the decision was made for Unai Emery to replace him.

Holding made an encouraging start to the clash, but the score was locked at 1-1 when he was hauled off.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 live, ex-Leicester City star Robbie Savage predicted that Holding suffered ligament damage.

He said: “It looks like knee ligament damage and the medical team were possibly doing tests on the side of the field.

“He stood up and was in a lot of pain. It is a shame because he has been playing well.”
