“This is my club” – Gabriel Martinelli 0

Gabriel Martinelli obviously has no dilemmas about his intentions for the future. He is 100% committed to Arsenal, and as he says himself, he only needs a pen to sign a new contract with the club.

“I’m very happy at Arsenal,” the Brazilian winger said.  “I’ve said it many times. This is my club, I love to be here, I love the city, I love the club, I love everything about Arsenal, so, I want to stay. I’m very happy.”

Asked about signing a new contract, Martinelli jokingly replied that he just needed to get a pen.

Arsenal fans knew that the game against Liverpool was going to serve as a real test of their character and in the end, they passed that test with flying colours as they edged out a dramatic 3-2 win to see off the Reds at the Emirates.

The win keeps the club at the top of the Premier League table and while there’s a whole lot of football left to be played, it’s hard not to get excited.

Gabriel Martinelli, who scored the opener with less than a minute on the clock, spoke to the media after the match about the victory.

Gabriel Martinelli set for new Arsenal contract 0

Gabriel Martinelli is on course to sign a new contract with Arsenal, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Apparently, the talks on the subject have been going on for weeks and the Brazilian winger has no other thought than remaining at the Emirates for the foreseeable future.

This is obviously great news for Arsenal. Martinelli has been fantastic so far this season, playing a major role in the team’s fight to stay at the top of the Premier League table and crowning his sublime form with a goal and an assist in the huge win over Liverpool on Sunday. Since the start of the term, he’s scored four goals and assisted twice in 11 matches in all competitions, and he’s been a nightmare to defend against coming from the left attacking flank.

Arsenal 3-2 Liverpool: The Gunners back on top 0

Arsenal have returned to the top of the Premier League table after beating Liverpool 3-2 at the Emirates on Sunday, courtesy of an early opener from Gabriel Martinelli and a brace from Bukayo Saka. Darwin Nunez and Roberto Firmino struck for the visitors.

It was a lively affair throughout, with Martinelli’s goal coming within a minute from the kick-off and forcing Liverpool to attack more fiercely than they would have done otherwise. The balance of the game changed with relative frequency, but it could be said that Liverpool controlled most of the proceedings in the first half and Arsenal took over after the break.

Arsenal managed to secure a 2-0 win over Everton at the weekend but, as we know, a pre-season success in Baltimore doesn’t add up to sustained joy in the Premier League – far from it, in fact.

The Gunners need to put in a whole lot of work if they’re serious about making a push for the top four and just about everyone knows that. From the management to the fans and beyond it’s become quite evident and after the game, forward Gabriel Martinelli actually gave his thoughts on the situation too as the campaign draws closer.

Arteta demands PGMOL explanation after fourth red card in 2022 0

Gabriel Martinelli was sent off in a bizarre way in the 69th minute of Arsenal’s 0-1 win away to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Thursday. The Brazilian forward first tried to prevent a quick throw-in by pushing Daniel Podence, and followed that up with a tactical foul on Chiquinho. Referee Michael Oliver played advantage on the first offence, but then chose to hand two separate bookings and sent Martinelli off.

The referee could’ve perhaps let the young forward off with one yellow card and a stern talking-to, but that would have been just that – letting off. Oliver certainly acted within his rights and strictly according to the rules of the game.

Martinelli named Arsenal’s Player of the Month 0

For the second straight month, Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli has been named the club’s Player of the Month. It comes after a string of impressive displays against Manchester City, Liverpool and Burnley, with the 20-year-old making one thing perfectly clear – he’s here to stay.

Many were wondering, just a few months ago, when the youngster would be given a chance to really shine in the first team. Now, it already seems like he’s ready to start featuring in the starting XI on a frequent basis.

Following the unceremonious departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from the club, a rather worrying concern has been raised regarding the central attacking role. For the time being, manager Mikel Arteta appears to have put his faith in Alexandre Lacazette as the man to lead the attacking line, with Eddie Nketiah as his first deputy. Meanwhile, the club worked hard to sign Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina through the January transfer window, only to see Juventus step in decisively and fork out the €75 million the Florence club were demanding.

Arteta looks forward to having full squad available 0

Speaking to the press ahead of Arsenal’s encounter with Norwich City on Saturday, manager Mikel Arteta said he wasn’t looking for any excuses for the poor results of the first three Premier League rounds, but he is looking forward to having some players, previously absent, available for selection.

“Well, I’m really looking forward to having everybody available and trying to start the season the way we want,” Arteta said.

“We don’t want to use any excuses. We know how difficult the start was, with injuries, with a lot of COVID issues that we had, and with difficult games we had to play. We have to reset now, and hopefully get everybody back on track, and start winning football games, which is what we have to do.”

The Gabriel Martinelli effect 0

While Mikel Arteta may be gearing up for a season in which Aubameyang and Lacazette are featured heavily up top again, we think he needs to be giving some serious consideration to what kind of role Gabriel Martinelli can and will play in this equation.

At the age of just 20, he’s already starting to make the best and biggest kind of splash you could hope for as a young player – and especially as a young forward. Whenever he comes on the pitch there’s a certain energy in the air that radiates off of this Arsenal team and instead of shying away from that, we think Arteta needs to embrace it in every way imaginable.
