Emile Smith Rowe was feeling the love on Tuesday after another positive performance, including from fans of Huddersfield Town.
Emile Smith Rowe made another start for Arsenal on Tuesday, his second of the Premier League season. It was seemingly no coincidence the team won their second consecutive game, with another strong individual display.
But it’s not just those at Arsenal enjoying the midfielder’s performances. Smith Rowe spent the second half of last season on loan at Huddersfield Town, where he earned himself the affections of their followers.
One Huddersfield Town supporter sent a message on behalf of his fellow fans on Tuesday, saying:
“Lots of love for you Emile from Huddersfield. We are cheering you on and watching you grow into the massive potential you have. We look forward to seeing you start for England one day. Oh and keep eating that spicy Chicken. All the best from West Yorkshire.”
Meanwhile, Ian Wright looked like a proud man on Match of the Day later in the evening, telling Gary Lineker he went to school with Smith Rowe’s dad and has been following the youngster for a while.
On Instagram, Reiss Nelson made a joking comparison between Smith Rowe and Kevin De Bruyne.
The Croydon-raised midfielder once admitted the Manchester City man is an inspiration to him, earning him the nickname “Croydon De Bruyne” among Arsenal fans.
Everyone is excited to see a young Arsenal academy product with the club at heart shining on the pitch and helping to turn the club’s recent fortunes around. Along with Bukayo Saka, Smith Rowe is earning his spot in the team on merit.
