Arsenal fans react to Emile Smith Rowe display vs Brighton
A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Emile Smith Rowe after the youngster’s display in the stalemate with Brighton on Saturday.
What’s the story?
Arsenal go into the international break having not lost any of their last four in the Premier League.
Their latest point came at the Amex Stadium as they drew 0-0 with the Seagulls.
It was not a game filled with chances. And Arsenal were nowhere near as exciting as they had been the previous week in the North London derby.
According to Whoscored, the visitors only had two attempts on target during the 90 minutes. And Aaron Ramsdale was the busier goalkeeper.
But there were some bright performances from the Gunners. And one of those who received a lot of praise on social media was Smith Rowe.
Admittedly, he had a couple of golden chances to set up a teammate. And some on Twitter have hit out at the 20-year-old for not making the most of those openings.
But most feel that the academy graduate was Arsenal’s best attacking player on the south coast.
No player completed a greater number of successful dribbles than Smith Rowe. Meanwhile, he also made two key passes during the draw.

He looked dangerous throughout much of the contest. And if anything was going to happen for Arsenal, it looked likely to come from the attacking midfielder.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Arsenal fans made of Smith Rowe’s performance in the goalless draw with Brighton…

Once again esr has had another massive goal scoring chance. It’s such a good sign seeing him get into these positions so often now. Once he improves on his decision making/finishing he’ll be unstoppable.

I’m all up for Smith Rowe. We have some player on our hands, with the right amount of experience he’s going to be massive.
