Martinelli is in superb form at the moment, he has scored five goals, two assists in his last six games. The Brazilian who’s seizing the opportunity that has come from Pierre Emerick Aubameyang absence.

 

Martinelli performance has caught the attention of his coach ‘Mikel’ who spoke to the media about the Brazilian.

 

Here’s Mikel statement on Arsenal official website

 

“You cannot play every action at 100mph, it is impossible,” Arsenal boss Mikel said. “It is not very efficient for you because you burn yourself out after a few minutes, and then you just chase a situation and not reading exactly what is needed.

“Martinelli is doing much better at that. We have to try to [develop] that without losing the passion, the energy and this capacity he has to just affect the game with the way he acts on the pitch.

 

He trains incredibly hard, he is always willing to do more and he is not scared or afraid to take risks, and that is what I like about him.

“I can imagine [playing against him] – you’re not going to have any time on the ball, every time the ball is 50/50 he is going to chase it and he’s going to use his body, his speed, his technical ability to get away from you.

 

“You have to be careful because he can attack you one v one, he can attack your back, he can make movements off the ball… he is a real threat in front of goal.”
