Coach Mikel Arteta directs tactics for Arsenal
Arsenal have just had a make up match to welcome Liverpool at Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners tried very hard but could not stop the stars on the Liverpool side from scoring.
However, Gabriel Martinelli still had an excellent day, tormenting the Liverpool defense.
In a ball phase in the 49th minute, the Brazilian talent handled it quite skillfully.
He easily escaped the stalking of Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Immediately, captain Jodan Henderson ran to support the defense.
However, Arsenal’s number 35 stunned when he pierced Henderson’s groin in just one move.
Soon after, Martinelli also passed another Liverpool defender inside. He dribbled the ball like an empty place and dangerously stretched. Unfortunately, none of the teammates received this pass.
Statistics show that Martinelli is 100% successful in passing, 100% successful in tackles, 4 times won duels, 3/3 successful dribbles, 3 recoveries and 1 chance created.
Martinelli is the bright spot on the Gunners attack. With more luck, Arsenal can score against Liverpool. Obviously, Martinelli is the hope and future of the Emirates Stadium team.
It is no coincidence that coach Jurgen Klopp appreciates Martinelli’s talent. The excellence of the 20-year-old star made Emile Smith Rowe often reserve the past time. It should be known that Arsenal only spent 5 million euros to recruit Martinelli in 2019.
