Video: Arteta insists that the senior players value must be respected

Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka are proving to be leaders on the pitch, with their workrate and vocals, but Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta insists the senior players are key.

The two youngsters are most definitely of importance to our side, both in motivation and ability, and that mix with the crucial experience of the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cannot be discredited.

The manager doesn’t quite answer the question that was asked, but the message he puts out is a positive one.

Could Saka and Martinelli prove to be future captains in the side one day?

    Respect all players as long as the results keep coming with senior players still able to give 100% when they haven’t got the ball.
    You leaveMartinelli out at your own risk he has pure pace and ability you can’t be without
    I’ve said before you have a future captain In Tierney all great captains play defence or midfield
    I hope Arteta doesn’t waver too much now, it surely is time to cull players who are not up to Premier League

    Mr. B. Saka the future Mr. Terry playing in from wide. I understand stats. It also don’t tell the hole truth. William makes more mistakes than those 3x mentioned. Against Albion, how many mistakes did Tierney and Saka made over their playing time as to Williams over 20 min.

    My worry is that Arteta would prefer to play seniors rather than Juniors
    I hope not these youngsters will be the Clubs saviours don’t sacrifice them for those that are not up to it,
    Willian was a mistake? admit it , leave him out and see the play flow
    Arteta must move with the times and not look back to what was!
