Tony Adams expressed his concerns over the Arsenal defence ahead of their clash with Leicester .
Unai Emery reverted to a back three for the encounter at the King Power, with Sokratis making way.
David Luiz, Calum Chambers and Rob Holding started against Leicester as Arsenal attempted to keep out the high-flying Foxes.
Speaking on Sky Sports ahead of the game, Adams suggested it was the right move – but highlighted Holding’s inclusion as a concern.
Adams said: “I like the team the way he’s set up today apart from Holding.
“They’re playing a back three and hopefully the clouds will lift today and we’ll have a great defensive performance.
Why does Tony Adams keep saying “except Holding” does that mean he rates Holding or he doesn’t?

“George Graham used to say if you haven’t got two good ones then play three.
“This lot may need four or five to be honest but I think it suits these guys
“They are having problems in that department but I think the two holding players, Torreira and Guendouzi, are good and it’s a better set-up today.
“You always defend as a team but this system is best suited to this squad of players apart from Holding.”
His comments on Holding in particular baffled Arsenal fans, with many unsure of his point.
The defender has struggled for form since recovering from a long-term injury but remains a favourite of supporters.
Arsenal went into the clash with Leicester in a poor run of form, with the pressure increasing on boss Unai Emery.
His side are already well adrift of the Foxes in the race to qualify for the Champions League.
