Alexandre Lacazette is helping out

Arsenal attacking midfielder Emile Smith Rowe says work on the training ground with captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and striker Alexandre Lacazette is paying dividends after he scored for the England Under-21s on Monday.

Embarrassment was prevented after he netted the only goal in a win against Andorra and now he will be fully focused on club duty at the weekend when the Gunners face Crystal Palace at home on Monday, and they are priced at 4/7 to win, with the Eagles 5/1 and a draw 3/1.

Smith Rowe breaks through

Smith Rowe has been one of Arsenal's most consistent performers this season, continuing on from his form last season when he made his big breakthrough.

Last year, he played 33 times for the Gunners, scoring four goals but his goal output has improved this season, netting two in eight games.

He and Bukayo Saka have been doing extra work after training to help improve their finishing after boss Mikel Arteta called on his youngsters to start adding more goals to their game.

Because we're both young players we've got to stay as calm as possible.

Twenty-one-year-old Smith Rowe feels as though it has paid off as he has been getting tutelage from Aubameyang and Lacazette.

"Arteta has spoken to us and given us so much confidence to stay calm," said Smith Rowe.

Calmness is crucial

"We know we're going to be getting into these positions. Because we're both young players we've got to stay as calm as possible and just focus on the goal really.

"We've been practicing a lot in training, after training, and we get the support from the experienced players in the team as well, they're always helping us. It's really good."

Arsenal are 11th in the table, on a four-match unbeaten run after a nightmare start to the season which saw them lose their opening three.
