(Video) Arsenal summer signing on the mark in win over Chivas as Gunners end pre-season tour in style

Arsenal defender Rob Holding scored as the Gunners picked up a 3-1 win over Chivas on Monday to ensure they ended their US tour with a win.

The former Bolton Wanderers ace tapped home an easy finish after Calum Chambers had diverted a cross into his path to open the scoring after 34 minutes.

Goals from Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain and Chuba Akpom sealed the win, with Arsene Wenger undoubtedly picking up some positive signs from his players with the new Premier League campaign around the corner.

Granit Xhaka was handed his first start in an Arsenal shirt as he looks to make his mark in the Gunners midfield, while Holding was given another opportunity to impress in the heart of the defence.

Arsenal will now take their pre-season preparations to Viking in Norway on Friday before travelling to Sweden to face Manchester City on Sunday.

Having clocked up the air miles, the Gunners will then look to make a positive start to the new season when they host Liverpool on August 14.

While Holding and Xhaka appear to be making a positive impression at their new club so far, Wenger will certainly still be under pressure to continue to strengthen his squad where possible as they are expected to remain active in the transfer market between now and the deadline.
