With time running out until the World Cup, Arteta said: ‘It’s very frustrating. He’s a kid that loves playing. It’s the biggest thing in his life. And when he’s not capable of doing that, especially after the run of games and performances that he had with us the year before, it’s just difficult.

Mikel Arteta has raised concerns about Emile Smith Rowe’s history with injuries and absences 

‘When he’s been trying to train he’s not been feeling 100 per cent fit or pain free. This is the main concern and we have to find a solution to that.

‘It’s an ongoing issue. He’s had some discomfort in the groin and hasn’t had any continuity this season.

Ben White was also left out of Gareth Southgate’s final squad before the World Cup. Arteta insisted that White was snubbed for Nations League games with Italy and Germany on selection grounds alone.

‘He is fit,’ said Arteta ahead of Sunday’s trip to Brentford.

‘I think Ben is giving a lot of reasons to be selected.’
