Chelsea right-back Reece James has raved about Arsenal attacking midfielder Emile Smith Rowe.

James and Smith Rowe are part of the current England squad.

The Chelsea defender, 21, has been impressed by how Smith Rowe is doing at Arsenal and by his progress.

James told The Mirror about Smith Rowe: “I’ve always known he is a top player. He came to Chelsea when he was quite young, actually, on trial. I remember playing with him and playing against him. 

“Even when he moved to Arsenal, I always knew he was a top player and I think this season he’s shown how good he is and why he’s been selected.”

Smith Rowe has established himself as a key figure in the Arsenal team and in line to make his debut for England this week.

The 21-year-old attacking midfielder has scored four goals and provided two assists in 10 Premier League starts for Mikel Arteta’s so far this season.

The Arsenal no. 10 has scored one goal in two Carabao Cup ties this campaign.

England will take on Albania in the 2022 World Cup qualifier on Friday.

The Three Lions can be backed at 13/1 on Betfair to win the match 5-0.
