Charlton manager Chris Powell has praised Arsenal loanee Emmanuel Frimpong, saying he will improve with every game he plays for the Addicks.

The 20-year-old is on loan at The Valley until the New Year’s Day and made his second appearance for the club in their 2-0 victory against Peterborough United on Tuesday.

Powell has been impressed by the talented youngster’s tough-tackling style and expects him to make a big impact at Charlton as he continues his adaption to playing regular first team football.

“He was good again,” said Powell after Frimpong played 74 minutes against Peterborough.

“He wants the ball and he wants to get on it, [even though] the way Peterborough played made it difficult for us.

“On Saturday [against Huddersfield] he played extremely well. He’s getting used to the pace of the Championship.

“He played a little bit longer than he did on Saturday tonight so we’re building him up.

“He’s definitely contributed to us. He wants the ball, he doesn’t hide.

“He’s a good footballer. He’s very strong in the tackle as you saw [against Peterborough] and obviously he’s well-schooled by Arsenal.

“I think he’ll get stronger and better each and every game.”
