Arteta concerned by Arsenal’s injury setbacks

Arteta concerned by Arsenal’s injury setbacks ahead of the Premier League game against Brentford on Sunday.

Arsenal is concerned about Emile Smith Rowe’s injury setbacks, according to manager Mikel Arteta.

Smith Rowe built a reputation as a first-team player for Arsenal over the course of the previous two campaigns, making 70 appearances for the London side.

The 22-year-old was not included for either of England’s forthcoming Nations League games against Germany and Italy.

“Well I am concerned that we don’t have him available, and when he’s been trying to train he’s not been feeling 100 percent fit or pain-free,” Arteta told reporters ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League trip to Brentford.

“This is the main concern, and we have to find a solution to that, and we are trying to do so. It is very frustrating. He’s a kid that loves playing football. It’s the biggest thing in his life.

“And when he’s not capable of doing that, especially after the run of games and performances that he had with us the year before, it’s just difficult. But injuries are part of football. You are going to get them at some stage in your career.

“It’s about how you are going to face those moments, who you are surrounded by, and how you make the next step.”
