Emile Smith Rowe is the latest rising baller of the Gunners and is becoming a popular player among the fans.

Arsenal

has experienced a turning point since Arteta introduced the young energetic

Emile Smith Rowe

to his squad. The English midfielder is a hardworking player and can be found in any area on the field.

Ian Wright compares him to

Mesut Ozil

who was considered a lazy player. Wright told Premier League Productions after witnessing that display, and with outcast Ozil edging his way through the exits: “He’s [Smith Rowe] somebody they have had high hopes for.

“He’s had a couple of injuries and gone out on loan a couple of times. They know what he’s capable of.

“When you look at him in the academy and the first team, apart from Ozil, they are not many players who play in that hole like he does.

“On the half-turn, with a lot more energy and pace than anybody else. Maybe even Ozil when he’s in there.

“He’s all over the place. He’s got a lovely touch. He has realised that this is where I am meant to be. I am ready. He has taken [his chance].

“When you are playing against an Arsenal side, in the current form, with the energy of Saka and Smith-Rowe... And I have to say Cedric at right-back was brilliant. [Thomas] Partey was magnificent.”
