Smith Rowe says Mesut Ozil is best he’s played with and names best atmosphere

Arsenal's new superstar Emile Smith Rowe has named Mesut Ozil as the best player he's ever played with in his career.

Ozil and Smith Rowe played together at the Emirates, and ironically it was the German leaving that paved the way for Smith Rowe's introduction to the first team. However, Ozil has since been deemed surplus to requirements and moved to Turkey.

He told GOAL while appearing on Simply The Best: "Everyone knows how good he (Ozil) is, so I'd have to say him." While the youngster named Kevin de Bruyne as the toughest opponent he has played against.

However, when asked about the best atmosphere in the Premier League, Smith Rowe quipped: "It was at Anfield. The fans were crazy there. That's probably the biggest atmosphere I've ever experienced."

And he's not the only Arsenal man to think that with Mikel Arteta saying last season: "You have to know what is Anfield and it’s, believe me, very different to any ground you have experienced in the Premier League. First of all, you have to go there top.

"I go to Anfield and I’m going to beat them and I’m going to win and I really believe that we go to Anfield and we’re going to beat them."

Arteta was so wary of the Anfield atmosphere last season that he set up giant speakers during Arsenal's training session to play 'You'll Never Walk Alone' as the Gunners prepared for the clash.

The stunt was revealed during Arsenal's All or Nothing documentary on Amazon Prime.
