Arsenal starlet Emile Smith Rowe has scored a stunning solo effort against Brighton as he continues to look a class above the rest at youth level.
The 19-year-old attacking midfielder has shone in first-team appearances as well in his career so far, though he’s yet to fully establish himself as part of Unai Emery’s plans.
Going from 0 to 100 with ESR ?

Still, goals like the one above show he’s got to be in Emery’s plans soon enough, with the Spanish tactician showing a willingness to use academy products like Joe Willock, Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles in recent times.
Here’s some reaction to Smith Rowe’s quality goal as some fans call for him to get a promotion…
He should be in the first team imo. pic.twitter.com/1bBPP1qHBl
