Gabriel Martinelli has been sensational since making the move to Arsenal from Brazil’s fourth division in 2019 for £6milion. His drive and ability have made him a guaranteed starter under Arteta. He is a young player that plays without fear and his interesting scoring record epitomises that in the Premier League for the Gunners. Because of his lack of fear, he has become one of Arsenal’s main scoring threats. Martinelli kicked off the first Premier League game of the season with a goal against Crystal Palace at Selhurst park. Scoring away from home is a regular theme for the Brazilian, highlighting his ability to not be swayed by a difficult atmosphere, making him a crucial asset to the Gunners, as this trait is rare in young players. : Edu’s £12.6m Arsenal blessing to sign Youri Tielemans at risk amid surprise Premier League bid Eight of Martinelli’s 12 Premier League goals have been scored away from home since he made his first appearance in 2019. This statistic shows that the Brazilian performs even better when the stakes are high, and Arsenal are under pressure. The youngster has been performing excellently on the left-hand side for Arsenal in recent months, so he has been called up to the senior Brazil squad. Martinelli touched on how it is one of his dreams to play in a World Cup, and with the next edition of this competition set to take place in less than nine months, he certainly has a great chance of being on the plane to Qatar with the Brazilian national team. It seems that the 21-year-old has thanked Arteta for the notice he has received from Brazil and his impressive form in the Premier League. Martinelli spoke about the Spaniard via Daily Mail: “He is also a nice person, always treating me well. I feel Arteta will be one of those lifelong coaches with lots of titles to their name and their place in football history. The international call-up is a reflection of the quality he has shown in an Arsenal shirt in recent times. His promising potential has been smashed home by his ability to overcome the top two right-backs in the Premier League in Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joao Cancelo. Arsenal did lose both games to Manchester City and Liverpool last season, but the fact that Martinelli still stood out with his performances shows just how much of a quality player he is. Liverpool have been previously linked to signing him, and it is clear to see why after the excellent displays, he has consistently shown in an Arsenal shirt. If Martinell’s scoring record away from home can be replicated at the Emirates, then the Brazilian will have an excellent career to look back on in years down the line. But, his early preference to score away from home highlights the strong mentality of the player and why he is so crucial for Arsenal.
