Arsenal outcast, Mesut Ozil has singled out Emile Smith-Rowe for praise after helping Arsenal to another win at the Hawthorns.
Arsenal has been lacking the creative edge in the middle of the pack and Dani Ceballos appears not to fit the bill as Thomas Partey is currently injured.
Mikel Arteta had to summon the young lad, who has started three straight games and recorded wins and he appeared to be the difference-maker against Sam Allardyce’s men.
He took to his Twitter page and wrote: “: Nice game my boys! Fire Great spirit – 3 wins in a row. The team looks good with a No10 like Emile Smith Rowe – the difference-maker.”

Arsenal ruthless against West Brom
The Gunners started the night with a classic goal from Kieran Tierney. The left-back made a solo run into the box and curled the ball into the net to give Gunners the lead in the first half, before the impressive Bukayo Saka rounded off a stunning passing move to make it 2-0.
Arsenal’s highest goalscorer so far, Alexandre Lacazette got the third and fourth goals after the break. He smashed a rebound from Emile Smith Rowe’s shot before he was set up by Tierney.
