A number of Arsenal fans have welcomed the latest news on Emile Smith Rowe’s fitness.
The 20-year-old was taken off at half time in the Gunners’ Premier League win over Leicester with discomfort in his hip.
However, the Arsenal media team confirmed that Smith Rowe has undergone scans and assessments which show his injury is not significant.
As a result, the Hale End graduate could potentially be available for Saturday’s meeting with Burnley, pending a late fitness test.
Here is what some Arsenal fans have been saying on social media:

Smith Rowe has made a sensational breakthrough this season, becoming the latest Hale End star to become a first-team regular under Mikel Arteta.
He has made 12 Premier League appearances this season, registering four assists, and has scored in the FA Cup and Europa League.
Crucially, Smith Rowe has given Arsenal something that was seriously lacking in the first half of the season – creativity in midfield.
With Martin Odegaard now also in the Gunners ranks, there are two No. 10s competing for a spot in the starting XI.
