Liverpool hero Jamie Carragher was impressed by Emile Smith Rowe for Arsenal's victory over Aston Villa on Friday night.

Carragher hailed Arsenal's brilliant display as he singled out "special talent" Smith Rowe as a future England international.

"I thought Arsenal were brilliant, I really did. It was very difficult for Villa to make two or three passes," Carragher told Sky Sports.

"Lacazette and Aubameyang were brilliant tonight. Even the supporters weren't sure who the leaders are in this team but they both gave a real leader's performance tonight.

"Emile Smith Rowe will get England caps, absolutely no doubt. There are so many good young players. He'll have to bide his time, there are other young players ahead of him right now but I absolutely love that lad.

"I always want him to do well, you're urging him on. To watch him in full flow, I've said he's the best player in the Premier League running the ball.

"He's so exciting, the pace, moving with the ball. He's a special talent. He can pop up in different positions, he has that ability to play all four positions up top and that's a real bonus."
