Declan Rice delivered his verdict on Emile Smith Rowe’s display for Arsenal against Luton Town last night.

Emile Smith Rowe got a rare opportunity to impress from the off last night as he started alongside Thomas Partey and Martin Odegaard in midfield.

It was the 23-year-old’s third Premier League start of the season as Mikel Arteta made five changes to the side which earned a point at Manchester City.

The Englishman played a key role in both goals as he won the ball back high up the pitch shortly before Odegaard’s opener.

He then created the second after finding space down the left-hand side as his delivery forced Daiki Hashioka to score an own goal.

Following an impressive 85 minutes from Smith Rowe, Rice took to Instagram to send the midfielder a message.

The Arsenal star reacted to Smith Rowe picking up the Player of the Match award and wrote: “This guy,” alongside a star emoji.
