Agbonlahor says Arsenal will not miss injured midfielder

Gabby Agbonlahor believes Arsenal now has more squad depth, and they will not miss the injured Emile Smith Rowe.

The Englishman is a key member of the Arsenal squad, but they bolstered the group in the last transfer window, and they now have even more options.

This means it could take a while for him to re-establish himself in the side when he returns.

Previously, when a key player gets injured at Arsenal, the Gunners suffer, but now they have a big squad with quality players, and they can replace anyone.

Agbonlahor believes this puts them in a healthy position, and they will not long for Smith Rowe to return to fitness.

He tells Football Insider:

“It just shows why you need a big squad.

“What’s going to help now is that some teams are not playing again until the beginning of October in the Premier League.”

Adding: “For Smith Rowe, it’s not good but there are not a lot of games between now and the World Cup.

“I feel that Arsenal have got enough cover to last them until after the World Cup.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Arsenal’s squad depth means an injury-prone player will struggle to play.

They already have top talents in different positions on their team, and the players are desperate to impress and stay in the side.

If they keep winning, it will be hard to change the team to make room for a new man.

    1. Spot on! Partey is a different animal, we need him always and we really must carefully manage him. I like the way he was substituted after we had basically killed the game. Lokonga is improving well and needs a piece of the action too. Arsenal has a real shot at winning the league!

      1. I honestly don’t think we have a big shout at winning the league tho. The starting 11 looks great but the backups, we’re way too short of qualities in several positions

  1. He is already back, only that we pray he remains fit for longer period until a better cover up is brought into the team though Zinchenko is around but I don’t think he can do what Partey is doing right now. Look at how he stood at the chest of the bees.

    1. Was just warming to the idea that Partey best days are behind him.

      But yesterday reminds me, Partey when fully fit is second to none and a mean in the world

  2. ESR is a prodigious talent who will be an important player for Arsenal in the years ahead once he overcomes his injury problems which may well be put down to acute “growing pains” He has grown and filled out during the past 18 months and this can result in muscular problems which will settle down .Check out images of the lad two years ago, and the “man” today.

  3. A heartfelt plea to Ad PAT. can we please stop reporting the so called “thoughts” of that mental plodder, Agbonlahor. Please!!!
    I wouldn’t mind if he EVER said anything intelligent, wise or original, but as we can all see, he never does.

    Example of his muddled thinking; “it shows why you need a big squad”! And then THIS PIECE OF SHEER STUPIDITY,”I feel that Arsenal have got enough cover to last them until, after the world cup”.
    Oh dear, mental Plodder GABBY!

    1. I hope he does coz he’d certainly get his chance as there’s no proper cover for Xhaka and Martinelli and he can play both positions excellently

  4. That’s to show they have a balance team now but they should add one more defensive midfielder to make the team more stronger

  5. Jesus is the Gooners key ; he is now given the opportunity to play regularly (which he did not get from Pep ) and he has grasped the opportunity with both hands. He is super skillful , two footed , a decent header of the ball (ask Brentford !) and most of all ,he brings huge energy and work ethic to the front line which was not there with Laca or Auba….that energy is permeating the team …he needs to watch his yellows !!
