However, he is unlikely to play in any of the games. Although, the winger will speed up his recovery from injury at the camp.
ARSENAL WINGER EMILE SMITH ROWE IS FINALLY SPEEDING UP HIS RECOVERY
According to reports, Arsenal winger Emile Smith Rowe is targeting a January return to the Premier League squad. He will also join the non-World Cup players to the Dubai camp for the Dubai Cup. However, he is unlikely to play in any of these games. This is because he is not going to immediately start with full training in the Dubai camp.
He will likely work with the Arsenal medical team on an individual basis. However, the report also claims that the winger hopes to join the team training by the end of the month. If Smith Rowe joins the team training, there is a 100% possibility that he will start getting chances from the bench in the Premier League games. This will also increase the options available in the squad for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta
GABRIEL MARTINELLI WILL FINALLY HAVE A PLAYER CHALLENGING FOR HIS POSITION
Arsenal winger Gabriel Martinelli is currently the only left-winger in the squad. Hence, he is guaranteed a start in almost every game. However, he has not taken the starts lightly. The winger has performed brilliantly under Mikel Arteta. Hence, he was included in Brazil’s squad for the World Cup in Qatar. Therefore, Martinelli is in his top form at the moment.
However, there is always a chance of an unfortunate injury happening to players during the World Cup. Therefore, it is important for the Arsenal manager to have two players for the same position. Emile Smith Rowe also has the potential to challenge fully fit Martinelli for the starting spot. The Arsenal fans need to remember that Emile Smith Rowe was ahead of Martinelli in the initial days of Arteta’s management. Hence, it is clear that Mikel Arteta trusts his abilities.
Arsenal and Emile Smith Rowe made a brilliant decision of having surgery in his youth. This gives him the chance to recover quickly from the problems of injury. Emile Smith Rowe will also now provide squad depth for Mikel Arteta in the second half of the season.
