Emile Smith Rowe has suffered a knock in training, which will keep him out of Arsenal’s final Europa League group stage game against Qarabag.
The 18-year-old has been one of the stars of the Gunners’ European campaign this season, having scored his first two senior goals away to Qarabag and Vorskla Poltova, with Unai Emery’s side already assured of top spot in Group E.
Arsenal made no mention of an injury to the midfielder in their most recent team news update, but Youth Expert Jeorge Bird spotted that the youngster wasn’t in training photos, and he hasn’t been for a couple of weeks now.
He is yet to make a real impact on Emery’s team in the Premier League, however, having only been named on the bench on three occasions thus far.
Seven youngsters trained with the first team at London Colney before the game in north London, including Eddie Nketiah, Joe Willock, Zech Medley, Charlie Gilmour, Tyreece John-Jules, Bukayo Saka and Dominic Thompson.
