Arsenal 1-1 Slavia Prague Participant Rankings: Smith Rowe flops


Arsenal’s troubles continued when a 1-1 Europa League tie against Slavia Prague was played on Thursday.

It was an encounter with little goalkeeping action and a disappointingly low offensive quality for the home team.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Nicolas Pepe came off the bench to give Mikel Arteta’s side the lead in the 86th minute, but incredible to be held back by Tomas Holes

In the past few weeks, Willian has shown signs of optimism among Arsenal fans. The Brazilian has made four assists in his last five games for the Gunners.

However, in the Emirates on Thursday, he was guilty of reverting to his old habits. He lost possession a staggering 12 times over the course of the game, while winning only twice without scoring a shot on goal.

Replaced by Gabriel Martinelli with 20 minutes left.

Hailed as the Star of the Future, Smith Rowe has gotten quite lost in the past few weeks and also looked like it would happen all too easily for long periods of this game.

Was the least active of Arsenal’s starting XI, which is alarming as he was the player who was supposed to be the architect of their attacks.

So it’s no wonder that the Gunners fought so aggressively.

⭐ Toma’s holes: 7.4

It wasn’t a night to remember for anyone on the field except for the Slavia Prague center-back who scored a goal he could remember within seconds.

This was a match that was dominated by defense, but it was Slavia’s rearguard that looked most vulnerable – with the exception of holes. His header from a late corner from Lukas Provod gave Slavia a crucial away goal and completely changed the complexion of the draw.
