Martinelli reminds us of his performance when he last faced Crystal Palace amidst injuries doubts

Gabriel Martinelli is an injury doubt for Arsenal’s match against Crystal Palace on Monday, but he is having a positive presence on social media.

The attacker has struggled to play for the club recently and would have liked to be involved against the Eagles, but Football London says he might not be fit enough.

He hasn’t allowed that to bother him much with the report claiming that in a now-expired Instagram story, the Brazilian shared a clip of the last time he played against Patrick Vieira’s side.

The game ended in a 3-1 success for Arsenal and Martinelli scored one goal.

The attacker will probably use that as a motivation to get back fit in time to inflict more misery on the Eagles at the start of next week.

Meanwhile, the Brazilian might be thinking about his long-term future at the Emirates now as Arsenal continues to be linked with a move for the likes of Noa Lang and Youssef En-Nesyri.

Mikel Arteta has signed players for his defence and midfield, but he inherited all the attackers currently at the club.

The Spaniard might add a few who he believes fit into his system soon, and that would be more problematic for Martinelli.

    Arsenal attackers are very selfish. Each of them is only trying to score from difficult angles when the should rather pass the ball.
    In the last 2 games Aubameyang on each occasion would have made a pass but he preferred to shoot. Same with ESR. Pepe is even worse.
    Partey shoots from positions where he is not sure the ball will be on target. All his shots go wide.
    I don’t think Arteta has a viable attacking plan.
    Why are smaller teams scoring many goals and not Arsenal?
    We struggle with small teams: City and Chelsea just make a fool of them.
    When shall we start dominating games.
    i feel like we are plagued by an inferiority complex due to the fear of making poor results.

    Mate, this negativity is unhealthy. All what you said has no facts or figures.
