Mikel Arteta gives injury update on Gabriel Martinelli for Arsenal fans

LONDON ENGLAND- JANUARY 09 Emile Smith Rowe shoot past Newcastle United goalkeeper Martin Dubrakva to score the 1st Arsenal goal during the FA Cup Third Round match between Arsenal and Newcastle United at Emirates Stadium

Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had been a peripheral figure before Arteta called for the cavalry but grabbed his sixth goal of the season with a 117th-minute tap-in from Kieran Tierney's centre.

Substitute Smith-Rowe was initially shown a straight red in stoppage time by referee Chris Kavanagh for a tackle on Matthew Longstaff before it was downgraded to a yellow card following a VAR review. "From a young kid I have always wanted to play for this club, I am really happy", Smith Rowe said.

"It shows how together we are, we have been working off the pitch to get closer as a group and it shows".

"It would be a little bit rushed to try and play him against Newcastle but I think he will be ready for Thursday", he added.

Next up for Arsenal is a home game against Crystal Palace. "I was in my workplace before the video game and 1 of the coaches came in and mentioned that Gabi harm himself, that he twisted his ankle".


"I went to the medical room and he was in tears and in a lot of pain".

"We knew coming into the game how tough it was going to be and it was just about breaking them down, and we got there in the end", Smith Rowe told the BBC. "Hopefully there is nothing as well significant, but to commence with it did not seem as well good".

Steve Bruce could not hide his disappointment at a missed opportunity for Newcastle, with Andy Carroll guilty of squandering two excellent chances.

Speaking after the game, goalscoring substitute Smith Rowe said the result highlighted the Gunners" togetherness, the north London side having recovered from an bad run of form to now win their last four games, while insisting his challenge on Longstaff "wasn't intentional'.
