Premier League

"Right Place For Him" Gunner Backed To Still Shine Even With Game Time Concerns

Arsenal lead the league with three wins in a row, but is everything fine at the Emirates?

Apart from Arsenal's number 10 Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith-Rowe was the standout performer last season. However, Gabriel Martinelli's rise in form towards the end of last season saw the English international lose his place in Arteta's starting 11. Rowe has only played 22 minutes of football in three games this season. This should be concerning for the 22-year-old, but Glenn Murray believes there is no need to be concerned.

Speaking to the BBC (as per TBR), the PL legend said, "Emile Smith Rowe will want to see action on the pitch. He’ll feel the pressure, but Arsenal are without a doubt the right place for him to progress his career. Mikel Arteta will look after him, put him in the right situation, but now is just not his time."

There is no need to be concerned if you are a Smith-Rowe fan. With a tight schedule and a large squad, Arteta will begin rotating his squad over time.
