There is no stopping Arsenal youngster as he collects another award

Gabriel Martinelli wins his second player of the month award.

Brazilian forward, Gabriel Martinelli has been named Arsenal’s Player of the Month for the second time in his young career, as announced on the official Arsenal website.

The Brazilian scooped the award ahead of Granit Xhaka and Bukayo Saka who came second and third respectively.
Martinelli who has scored 10 goals for Arsenal this season netted twice and provided an assist for the Gunners last month.

In January, he scored Arsenal’s only goal in their 1-1 draw against Sheffield United, before running 67 yards to score a fine goal in Arsenal’s 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

He rounded up the month with an assist for Bukayo Saka in the FA Cup. He has grown in importance to Arsenal so much so that the Gunners refused to allow him to join up with Brazil’s under23 side in their preparation for the summer Olympics.

Martinelli has joined Arsenal in their warm-weather training camp in Dubai, he will be hoping to feature more for Arsenal when they return to complete the latter part of the season.

This young lad just keeps on doing it, I suspect it will only be a matter of time before he starts collecting Premier League player of the month awards and he must be in with a shout of at least a nomination for the yearly award.

It should also be expected that in the near future he will receive a call up to the Brazilian (or Italian) national team and then his value will really soar.

    Whoever scouted him, should get a bonus. Very well done.

    I hope Mari comes good as well. Seems like a sympathetic guy.

    I think he has already got a call up from brazil but the club is not backing him to go it seems…

    Talking about his game,there is much to work on.He has loads of potential and can be a world class player in no time.The best part of his game is his courage and confidence.A hardworking talent never fails.

    But i think xhaka deserved the award,he has been our most consistent performer under MA.Covered up well whenever the team had injuries or are being countered.He also has a good passing range.Just my opinion.

    This is something i hate about football,people rely on stats so much when it comes to present awards or criticizing players.Not saying stats arent important but there is more,much more to football than numbers.

    Martinelli was great and may have won it but i think xhaka deserved it.
