Arsenal news LIVE: Lacazette exit LATEST, Isak eyed, Smith Rowe speaks after Aston Villa win


Jamie Carragher believes Arsenal star Emile Smith Rowe is the “best player in the Premier League running the ball”.

Carragher told Sky Sports: “I thought Arsenal were brilliant, I really did. It was very difficult for Villa to make two or three passes.

“[Alexandre] Lacazette and Aubameyang were brilliant tonight. Even the supporters weren’t sure who the leaders are in this team but they both gave a real leader’s performance tonight.

“Emile Smith Rowe will get England caps, absolutely no doubt. There are so many good young players. He’ll have to bide his time, there are other young players ahead of him right now but I absolutely love that lad.

“I always want him to do well, you’re urging him on. To watch him in full flow, I’ve said he’s the best player in the Premier League running the ball.

“He’s so exciting, the pace, moving with the ball. He’s a special talent. He can pop up in different positions, he has that ability to play all four positions up top and that’s a real bonus”
