Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith-Rowe is one of the most in-form young midfielders in the Premier League over the last one month. The England junior international was able to continue his red-hot form in front of goal as he found the back of the net in the league win over Leicester City at the weekend.
England midfielder Smith-Rowe scored his first goal of this season’s Premier League during the North London Derby demolition of Tottenham Hotspur. He scored one of the goals as Arsenal beat Spurs 3-1 at home England international Bukayo Saka and Gabonese striker Pierre-EmerickAubameyangscored the other goals for the Gunners, while Son Heung-Min got the lone goal for Spurs.
Smith-Rowe netted his second goal of the season in the Premier League when he found the back of the net with the third Arsenal goal against Aston Villa. The Arsenal Academy graduate was one of the three Gunners players on the scoresheet as they secured an impressive 3-1 home win over Villa. Thomas Partey and the aforementioned Aubameyang also scored against Villa, while substitute Jacob Ramsey was the recipient of the lone Villa goal.
Arsenal took the lead against Leicester City through a flicked Gabriel Magalhaes header in the fifth minute before Smith-Rowe made it two goals in two league games with the second Arsenal goal on 18 minutes. The North Londoners thereafter kept their hosts at bay with some fantastic goalkeeping from Aaron Ramsdale in the Arsenal goal. The result against the Foxes made it nine games unbeaten for the Gunners in all competitions.
