Martinelli has been plagued with injury-related problems since joining Arsenal’s squad for the 2019-20 season. He suffered a long-term knee injury in his first season, and has had problems with his calves and ankle in recent months. During the match against Everton, the 20-year-old suffered a hamstring strain, from which he has since recovered.
Gabriel Martinelli has had four goals in his last three Premier League appearances. He scored twice against Leeds to help the home team win 4-1. That caused Paul Merson to leave impression, who said:
“Martinelli is a very special talent. I like him, but the question is: how long will he be fit? If he can stay fit, Arsenal have got a new contract – a player worth £50m. that’s Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe.”
“Martin Odegaard is starting to look like the decent player he once wanted to be when he arrived at Arsenal, Thomas Partey is now starting to play. ; you put your hand in, and you’re never sure you’ll ever be. What to get!”
Arsenal on the right track under Mikel Arteta
The Arsenal team will continue to improve under Mikel Arteta.
A host of young stars have just hit their stride this season. The pair of central defenders Gabriel and Ben White look very solid. In midfield, Arsenal have Thomas Partey, Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe the right combination of steel and creativity.
Bukayo Saka is a top player, while Martinelli is expected to continue delivering in the coming weeks. Merson believes Arsenal’s next step is to achieve consistency, saying on the matter:
“They were beaten at Old Trafford and Goodison Park; Manchester United and Everton didn’t play well in those two games; they didn’t beat Arsenal, they just beat Arsenal. The problem with Arsenal is consistency; that was their problem in the last 10 games. years.”
“They’re going to put in some good performances; we’ve just seen that against Southampton, West Ham and Leeds, and they have a chance of finishing in the top four because they’re not in Europe and only play once per day. week.
However, the former Gunner also commended the team’s determination, saying:
“Arsenal deserves credit for being in this race, as long as they keep beating the underdogs, they’ll have a chance. If they lose to any of the big three, it won’t. makes the difference because no other team vying for fourth will beat the big three.”
