          Academy graduate Emile Smith Rowe’s fan-pleasing start to life as an Arsenal first-teamer continues at an impressive pace, with the 20-year-old sending reigning FA Cup champions Arsenal through to the next round of the competition.

          In a largely drab affair against Newcastle that was goalless after 90 minutes and the first half of extra time, Smith Rowe was once again the man making Arsenal fans believe, popping up with a superb finish to as good as end the tie on the night and send Arsenal through to the fourth round.

          Post-match Gunners boss Mikel Arteta said of Smith Rowe, "It was very impressive from Emile Smith Rowe because is playing with a lot of personality, a lot of risk. He is playing in areas where he needs to make things happen and he has got the talent to do it."

          So far he’s made things happen on six occasions, with two goals and four assists in nine appearances in all competitions, only becoming a regular player since the Christmas period, with former playmaker Mesut Ozil perhaps even acknowledging Smith Rowe is now undroppable.

          Clearly highly-rated by scouts around the continent, Smith Rowe had the opportunity to learn from one of the best developers of young players in the shape of Julian Nagelsmann at Leipzig, but his loan in 2018/19 saw just three appearances.

          Not to be deterred, Smith Rowe returned with to England, impressing on loan at Huddersfield last season with two goals and two assists in 19 games, now at Arsenal, the youngster has hit the best form of his professional career yet, and doesn’t look like stopping any time soon.
