Mikel Arteta has been speaking about the Arsenal chant dedicated to Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe.
The duo were the stars of the show in Arsenal’s latest outing. The Gunners would face off with Brentford on Saturday afternoon, looking to close the gap between themselves and the top-four.
And, when 90 minutes were up, goals from Saka and then Smith Rowe were enough to hand Arsenal the three points and ensure Christian Norgaard’s 93rd-minute strike counted for nothing.

After Brentford, Mikel Arteta was asked about the Arsenal chant which goes, ‘Hale End’s on a roll! Saka and Emile Smith Rowe!’.
And Mikel Arteta had the following to say: “Thank you to the supporters for the atmosphere they created.
“They love that song because they are players we have raised in our system.”
On Smith Rowe and Saka, the Arsenal manager added: “They have to get the headlines because they do what is most difficult and win the match by an individual action.
“They deserve credit for that, but I thought the rest of the team were very good too. “We do a lot of work with them individually, mentally with the psychologists, to fill their belief.
“They see how they are with the supporters, that energy and that’s probably their biggest strength. “[Smith Rowe] He’s been injured. He’s worked really hard and when he plays like he did today, he’s really good.”

Wolves, though, are not expected to be a pushover for the Gunners. Bruno Lage’s side are currently 8th in the Premier League and have won four of their last five league outings.
They are also just five points behind Arsenal in the PL, meaning Thursday’s tie is a must-win for Arteta and co.
