Mari starts for Arsenal Under-23s.

Pablo Mari and Rob Holding both had 45 minutes for Arsenal’s under-23s as they lost 2-1 to Chelsea at Meadow Park.

Folarin Balogun put Steve Bould’s side ahead on 16 minutes but the visitors, who lead the Premier League 2 table, bounced back quickly courtesy of goals from Armando Broja and Billy Gilmour.

Pablo, signed on loan from Flamengo for the rest of the season, hadn’t kicked a ball in anger since the Club World Cup final against Liverpool in late December and has been working hard to regain full fitness since joining in January.

Given his appearance this evening, it seems unlikely he’ll feature in Greece on Thursday night. The same probably goes for Holding who has endured a stop-start season so far.

I think you are allowed 2 or 3 older players.

We did concede the 2 goals when Pablo Mari and Rob Holding where the C/backs.

Reports are that Mari isn't fit enough yet and Holding showed a lot of rustiness.

That's great to know for the future.

Holding needs to be moved on.

We've got too many 3/4th chioce defenders.
