Some Arsenal fans have been left devastated after seeing ace Emile Smith Rowe stretchered off against Nottingham Forest this evening after a clash of heads.
Arsenal ace Emile Smith Rowe has been stretchered off for the Gunners in their clash against Nottingham Forest this evening.
The 19-year-old went down in the 40th minute of the Carabao Cup clash after colliding with Forest captain Jack Robinson.
Smith Rowe’s header forced a quality save out of the Reds’ keeper but it was quickly realised that the ace was in some trouble after the attempt.
Take a look at the collision below:

I just hope that Smith-Rowe injury isn’t so serious. He’s been so unlucky with injuries.

Nasty one for Smith Rowe, constantly unlucky with injuries. #ARSNOT

The ace spent the second-half of last season on loan at Leipzig but was limited to just 3 appearances and a total of 28 minutes after struggling with injuries.
It’s devastating to see the England youth international suffer this worrying injury so soon after returning to full fitness, we hope the talented youngster is back on the pitch as soon as possible.
