Smith Rowe and Nketiah train with Arsenal first-team ahead of Sporting Lisbon clash

Talented youngsters Emile Smith Rowe and Eddie Nketiah trained with the Arsenal first-team squad at London Colney today ahead of tomorrow night’s Europa League game at home to Sporting Lisbon.

Their involvement in the session means that they are unlikely to feature for the U21s against Forest Green in the Checkatrade Trophy tonight, although Joe Willock and Julio Pleguezuelo will be available for Freddie Ljungberg’s team.

As far as first-team players are concerned, Nacho Monreal and Sokratis Papastahopoulos are back in training, although Mohamed Elneny and Konstantinos Mavropanos remain sidelined.
