Declan Rice was forced to retire due to a back injury in the 2-2 draw against Tottenham, while Leandro Trossard was also sidelined. Gabriel Martinelli is also sidelined and that leaves Arsenal without many options on the left wing.
Mikel Arteta chose to put Gabriel Jesus on the left but this move was not very successful as Arsenal only had 1 point. And Kevin Campbell thinks Emile Smith Rowe could get a chance in the coming weeks.
Speaking on Highbury Squad, Campbell said that this is the right time for players like Smith Rowe to play: “This is the purpose of having a big squad. Now, Emile Smith Rowe, who many people think has been treated unfairly, will get a chance for Emile.”
“Come on and show, young man. We know he’s good enough.”
Smith Rowe has yet to start a match under Arteta this season. The 23-year-old has endured a difficult year after he barely featured on the field last season. But the England international has been a key figure for Arteta and many fans expect him to get another chance.
