Arsenal striker Welbeck hails 'great player' Smith Rowe

Arsenal secured their place in the next round of the Carabao Cup after a 3-1 victory over Brentford at the Emirates.

Smith, who has built a reputation for attacking football at Griffin Park, saw his side lose 3-1 to Derby on Saturday to drop to seventh in the table after dropping five points in their last two games.

"Also, it gives more chances for us to find (him) the first XI for the next match with performances like today".

"I am very happy individually with the player", Emery said after the game. Tonight, it's a good performance from every player and also Danny Welbeck, he worked with two goals, helping us.

Brentford attacker Alan Judge would pull one back for the visitors in the 58th minute with a superb free-kick, although in-form frontman Alexandre Lacazette came off the bench to score a third goal in stoppage time to seal the win for Unai Emery's side.

Emery was also questioned on Welbeck's contract situation, along with that of his team-mate Aaron Ramsey.

He continued: "There are three things when we are speaking about an individual".

But after failing to break into the first team, making just one appearance for the Gunners senior side in the Premier League - as a sub against Manchester United - he made a decision to leave to further his career. I know they are in the previous year of their contract with the team, and they are working and speaking with the club.

"For me the focus is on each match". Their future is also important, but it's like that.
