Smith Rowe’s injury setback

Emile Smith Rowe has been ruled out of Arsenal’s FA Cup clash with Manchester City.

The midfielder has suffered another injury setback although, as per the Evening Standard, it is not related to the groin injury which has seen him miss a large part of the season.

The 22-year-old has been sidelined since the start of September and has played just over an hour of football in total this season.

He has suffered a thigh injury, however, his absence is only precautionary and shouldn’t be too serious.

Mikel Arteta could make some changes to his usual line up including handing Leandro Trossard his full debut.
