Boost for Arsenal with our top goalscorer returning to training

Emile Smith Rowe has returned to training ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Watford on Sunday.

The Gunners are in top form at present with three wins from three in February, and could potentially take fourth in the table should results go our way this weekend.

That possibility is actually extremely likely with fourth-placed Manchester United taking on city rivals Manchester City at the Etihad, while fifth-placed West Ham United have to go to Liverpool in hope of a result.

This means we could take fourth spot whilst holding onto our three games in hand over both of the Uniteds, giving us an even stronger advantage in the race to qualify for the Champions League, piling the pressure on the chasing pack to keep up.

While there are no easy games at this point of the season, we have been boosted by the return of Emile Smith Rowe in the build-up to the fixture, but it remains to be seen whether Takehiro Tomiyasu will be able to return also.

Football.London spotted the English midfielder in training today, which took place at the Emirates instead of London Colney, and he will hopefully be able to continue his fine form in front of goal when we make the short trip north.

  1. based on more recent evidence I’m assuming his training consists of sitting on a bench, taking off a track suit and preparing for late-game minutes…just wish he would see the pitch more often, as he’s by far our most direct-playing midfielder, which is something we’ve dearly missed…maybe instead of having the limited stylings of Xhaka playing further up the pitch, we can roll the dice and replace him with ESR, especially against a bottom-feeder like Watford(no disrespect of course)

  2. Be good to see him back, hopefully starting on the bench and then getting a run out in the second half, as don’t want to see him out injured again. Plus shouldn’t change a winning team.

  3. No mention of why he missed the last game against Wolves!

    I for one, as you would expect, hope he starts.

    We can bring Nellie on in the second half when Watford are more tired. He can use his pace to better effect then!

  4. Spurs knocked out of the FA Cup…I’m thrilled about it but at the same time unhappy as it gives them more time to focus on EPL

    1. My thoughts exactly
      But a defeat to Middlesbrough might crush their fragile confidence still further 🤞
