lan Wright speaks to Premier League Productions after the game and he spoke of how Emile Smith Rowe is in a brilliant form and how Mikel Arteta must rotate his team to find a balance for the 21-years-old star.

He said: “At the moment what he’s doing is brilliant

“What you’re seeing with Emile Smith Rowe is ‘Ok, I’m out of the team but when I come on, I don’t care if I’m getting two minutes, five minutes, ten minutes, I’m going to get a chance, I’m going to make sure I score.’

“What he’s doing now, what he’s realised is that it’s about goals, it’s about end product.

“It’s something that he’s worked on and the manager’s wanted him to work on and now he’s showing the manager ‘right if you put me on the bench I’m looking to score a goal.’

“He’s done it and given the manager another problem and that is exactly what you want.”

Smith Rowe has now recorded seven goals anf two assist in his 16 appearance for the Gunners this season.

Speaking after the match, Arteta said: “They [the young players] are learning and they’re making a difference in the game. The senior players are playing a big role too.

“That’s what he [Gabriel Martinelli] can do. He’s getting a level of maturity. He’s so willing to learn. His passion in life is football. You can see that on the pitch.

“[Emile Smith Rowe has scored] seven in the league which is a remarkable figure. We wanted him to add it to his game.”
