Football expert Nedum Onuoha has said that Arsenal winger Gabriel Martinell was faster than anyone else in the Liverpool game. He has also claimed that the Brazilian was faster than Luiz Diaz.

Gabriel Martinelli is currently one of the in-form players this season. Hence, he is getting praised everywhere for his performances.


Arsenal winger Gabriel Martinelli is in brilliant form this season. The brilliant performances were evident against Liverpool. Hence, the Gunners beat them 3-2. This win also helped them stay at the top of the Premier League table. Hence, many football experts have praised the impact of the Brazilian this season. They have also dubbed him as the next big star in the footballing world.

Hence, Nedum Onuoha has given an interesting opinion on the Arsenal winger. He said,

” It (facing Arsenal’s front three) is bad news, it’s really, really bad news. It’s sort of a matchup nightmare. Before the game, everyone, for example, was saying Luis Diaz is really fast. Well, after the game, Martinelli is just a lot faster. Like you (Diaz) just got a yellow card for fouling Martinelli.“You know, Martinelli gets the ball and he just wants to go full speed at you.


Gabriel Martinelli is yet to commit his long-term future to the Gunners. The Brazilian is reportedly asking for a big pay rise. Hence, negotiations are going on between the club and the player. However, the negotiations are going in a positive direction. Hence, this is a positive update for Arsenal fans. The Gunners are committed to securing the futures of their young stars.

They are also working on the contract renewals of Bukayo Saka and William Saliba. Mikel Arteta wants to keep the core of the same young players at the club for many years. The owners are also happy to give the young players a pay rise. It will be a step in the right direction for the Arsenal hierarchy. However, they will have to be fast in contract renewal negotiations to avoid any last-minute issues.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has done a brilliant job in developing a squad with young players. These players have helped the club get brilliant results in the past few seasons. Hence, the owners need to support the ambition of Mikel Arteta and the rest of the coaching staff.
