Kieran Tierney lauds Arsenal teammate Emile Smith Rowe

Kieran Tierney has told Sky Sports that he thinks that Emile Smith Rowe is amazing, and insisted that Arsenal teammate will go very far in the game.

The left-back endured a tough first campaign following his £25 million move, largely due to injury. Meanwhile, Smith Rowe was out of the fold in the Premier League until December.

Could Centre-Forwards Become Extinct?

But they were the two players who really seemed to drag Mikel Arteta’s men out of their rut before the turn of the year.

So it was fitting that the pair were able to give Gareth Bale and Matt Doherty a torrid evening down Tottenham’s right flank in Sunday’s North London derby.

Smith Rowe hit the upright early on. And it was Tierney who provided the assist for Arsenal’s equaliser.

And the Scot insisted that the youngster has the potential to achieve anything he wants in the game.

“I think he’s amazing,” he told Sky Sports. “What a player, honestly. And I think you can see how much I enjoy to play with him.

“The other day I linked up well with him I thought. There’s a good understanding. Off the pitch as well, he’s a great guy, a humble guy and he’ll go very far in the game.”

Smith Rowe has certainly set the example for any young player looking to break into Arteta’s plans. He has grasped the opportunity with both hands and not looked back.

No player has provided more assists in the Premier League since Smith Rowe’s first league game of the season.

And if his partnership with Tierney can continue to develop, Arsenal may have an absolutely devastating pairing down their left flank for years to come.
