News Flash: Emile Smith Rowe injury update

Published

on

Mikel Arteta says Emile Smith Rowe picked up a muscular injury in Arsenal’s win over Leicester City on Sunday.

There were a lot of positives to take from Arsenal’s win away to Leicester City at the weekend. After a poor start to the match, Mikel Arteta’s side largely dominated, and they turned that dominance into goals to record a 3-1 win.

 

There were positive displays from the likes of Willian and Nicolas Pepe, but the one worrying sign (excluding Leicester’s opener) was seeing Emile Smith Rowe go down with an injury

The 20-year-old has a history with injuries, and the problem forced him off after just 42 minutes of the Leicester match. Arteta explained afterwards that it was a muscular problem

 

“It was a muscular injury so we decided to take him out,” Arteta said. “Hopefully, it’s not going to be too bad

 

 

“I’m concerned because for Emile to come out and say, ‘I cannot continue playing’… It should be something related to his hip. I don’t know how bad he is but he was in a good place after the game.

 

It would certainly be a blow to see Smith Rowe out for any serious period of time. Arsenal have the midweek off, so that will help, but we’ll have to wait and see how long he will miss.

 

This is exactly why Martin Odegaard was brought in. It would have been madness to expect Smith Rowe to stay fit and play every game for the rest of the season, and the Real Madrid loanee has done a good job in his place when called upon

 

Odegaard will likely start against Burnley now, but if Smith Rowe can make it back in time to replace him in one of the following matches, that would be a boost.

Just In: New pictures of Arsenal’s 2021/22 away kit leaked

Published

on

The first pictures of Arsenal’s first team squad sporting next season’s away kit have been leaked.

After this season’s, bloodshot eyes shirt, the club are returning to a more traditional yellow and blue combination for 2021/22.

The shade of yellow – ‘pearl citrine’ in adidas parlance – may look a little like custard but the use of the stripped-back cannon badge is a nice touch.

We expect to see similar shots of the home and third kits in due course. The latter is predicted to be blue with a lightning motif inspired by the kits of the mid-nineties.
