MUST READ: Key Reasons why Emile Smith-Rowe situation should change Mikel Arteta perceptions of the bench



Emile Smith-Rowe

It is a good complaint to have though! Despite facing many potential issue off the pitch, Emile Smith-Rowe have continued to defy their youthful inexperience act during the Christmas period with their overwhelming performances are providing Mikel Arteta with difficulty in selecting player headache.

With the level of Arsenal wealthy attacking options, Arsenal top scorer Emile Smith-Rowe has failed to start in any of their last three Premier League matches, but has still scored on each occasion he’s included to make it increasingly difficult to omit him for selection.

The strong attacking reserves we have now are likely a precursor to what our Guardiola-inspired manager will establish in north London, and they will likely change perceptions of what it means to be on the bench while highlighting how good quality back-up can be a positive – if not essential – factor in building a competitive team.

The combination of a star-studded cast and thorough coaching allows Man City to constantly use their preferred method without having to resort to plan B, despite the fact that it took time and a large sum of money to acquire.

Smith Rowe becomes the first player in #Arsenal history to score in four straight substitute appearances, while #AFC had a sub score in four consecutive matches for the third time, having done it earlier in September 2004 (a run of five under Wenger) and July 2020. ( run of 4 under Arteta)

Arsenal vs. Man City: The abundance of attacking options and Pep Guardiola’s influence necessitate a shift in mindset on the substitutes bench.

Meanwhile, Pep roulette highlights the winners’ ability to rotate the club regularly without sacrificing overall quality, with only three outfield players making more than 30 league appearances for the Citizens during last season’s title-winning campaign.

Furthermore, the Catalans’ much-maligned false-nine system exemplifies the advantages of having players who are both adaptable and stylistically similar.

When they’re on song, their constant movement between the lines and embarrassment of technical expertise make them practically unstoppable, and it provides the boss the opportunity to make modest but crucial alterations as needed during the game.

While Emile Smith-Rowe and Odegaard are frequently mentioned in pre-match comments, the England international has also been replaced for other teammates recently, coming on for Saka at Elland Road and replacing Martinelli for the last minutes of Arsenal’s Boxing Day victory at Carrow Road.

The interchangeability and ability of our young stars to operate anywhere across the front line, as it is in Manchester, gives Arteta greater managerial flexibility to bolster our offensive threat while also allowing him to rest the forwards ahead of upcoming matches without weakening the team, as we often suspect when substitutions are made.

While determining who to leave out isn’t the most appealing chore, Arteta has handled the problem admirably so far, and each young gun is still getting enough playing action to demonstrate their unquestionable potential, as seen by their participation in over 84 percent of our league goals this season.

Of course, Emile Smith-Rowe is currently the odd man out, but being on the bench does not always imply being unfavorable, and such difficult decisions are exactly the kind of problems the club is hoping to create as part of the rebuilding project, with the focus soon shifting to creating similar dilemmas throughout the team.

December has been a lot of fun. Working on the assumption that the month doesn’t begin until the 11th, because that’s when Arsenal has been entertaining to watch.

The smiles haven’t stopped beaming on supporters who can’t believe they’re watching the same team from earlier in the season after they scored their 19th goal in five games against a poor Norwich side on Boxing Day.

Not only the team that had lost its first three Premier League games, but also the new-look team in those early months.

These days, every new young coach wants to ‘play offensive football, have a lot of the ball, and press teams high.’ It’s a bit of a fad.
