Arsenal starlet Gabriel Martinelli beats out competition to bag Premier League award

Martinelli bags PFA award

Arsenal continues to grace the Premier League with gifted young talent and Brazilian starlet Gabriel Martinelli has received his just rewards after bagging the PFA Player of the Month award for December.

The Brazilian youth international made six appearances (all starts) for Mikel Arteta‘s Gunners in the Premier League, where he found the back of the net on three occasions while adding two assists across multiple influential performances.

While on his way to the monthly recognition, the Arsenal forward out-paced clubmate Martin Ødegaard as well as Leicester City’s James Maddison, Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling, Tottenham ace Son Heung-min, and Southampton standout James Ward-Prowse.

After his successful month, Martinelli now sits on nine goals for Arsenal in 41-appearances in the Premier League, and looks set to continue as a first-choice option for both now and the future on the left side of the forward line.

Brazilian starlet to feature against Liverpool

Gabriel Martinelli was named as part of a strong Arsenal XI as the Gunners prepare to clash with Liverpool in the first-leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final tie against Jürgen Klopp’s Reds at Anfield in just under an hour’s time.

Mikel Arteta opted to roll out his best-possible Arsenal lineup despite the North London Derby clash with Tottenham on Sunday, with academy graduate Bukayo Saka joining veteran French forward Alexandre Lacazette in lining up behind England youth international forward Eddie Nketiah.

Liverpool deployed in kind, however, with Klopp trotting out his strongest available team with only Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah and Naby Keïta (on AFCON duty) as the notable absentees. The likes of Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Andrew Robertson have all been given the nod in what is shaping up to be a tasty encounter on Merseyside.
