Gabriel Martinelli proved Ian Wright wrong with his performances

Gabriel Martinelli have scored four times in his last three matches. The player is in very good form this season and have helped Arsenal achieve new heights. However, Arsenal legend Ian Wright had made comments which suggested that Gabriel Martinelli has been struggling without Gabriel Jesus. Wright had commented,

“Arsenal are straining every sinew right now to stay in front [of Manchester City]. Yes, we have Jesus coming back which will then hopefully fire up Martinelli even more because our left-hand side has missed Jesus.”

He further added,

“Jesus would interchange with Martinelli, and he would get inside and we would get a little bit more going on our left side. That has been a bit redundant even though Martinelli has scored some goals, he’s had to come off the bench to do that. It feels like a whole side of Arsenal is not working.

“And once that comes back maybe we could start scoring more goals again and getting those goals and chances that we need to score, just to give us a bit more breathing space in the game because I don’t think from now on in Man City are going to relent.”

Gabriel Martinelli have managed to prove Ian Wright wrong. The Gunners fans are however quite happy that the player proved him wrong. Arsenal are currently sitting at the top of the League table. If things continue their way, Arsenal might end up lifting up the Premier League trophy.
