Mikel Arteta is “worried” about Emile Smith Rowe’s injury troubles, which have hampered his season. After having an injury-interrupted preseason, the midfielder has only made four substitute appearances this season and is yet to receive a start. When warming up after the loss at Manchester United earlier this month, Smith Rowe appeared to have made his fitness problems worse.

Before their two-week hiatus due to the international window, Arsenal plays Brentford on Sunday. When they go back, they play Tottenham in a north London derby, which marks the beginning of a pivotal month that could determine whether or not Arteta’s team challenges for the title this year.
Due to a lack of playing time, Smith Rowe is now out of the England picture. Gareth Southgate chose him last season, but because he is in the pecking order behind numerous experienced stars, he might not make the World Cup in Qatar this winter.
According to Mikel Arteta, it is very frustrating and he (Smith Rowe) enjoyed playing football as a young child. He said that It was the most important thing in Smith Rowe’s life and It was simply challenging when Smith Rowe was unable to achieve that, especially after the string of victories and standout performances Rowe had with them the previous season.
Mikel Arteta continued that however, we would experience injuries at some point in our football career and how we handled those trying times that have led us to this point.
Smith Rowe is now attempting to join a front quartet that has developed since the season’s first few weeks. Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, and captain Martin Odegaard have backed up Gabriel Jesus as he has led the line. If Smith Rowe can regain his starting position, he has choices because he can play on the wing or as the No. 10.
