Arsenal fans have been voting for Gabriel Martinelli as the club’s player of the month after his goal-scoring form in October.
The youngster enjoyed a stellar month in October, scoring five goals in just three starts for the north London giants (via Transfermarkt).
Should Xhaka ever play for Arsenal again?
However, it was his performance in Wednesday evening’s Carabao Cup tie against Liverpool which has turned all eyes on Martinelli.
He scored a brace which took his tally up to seven goals in his first 400 minutes in Europe, a feat only matched by legendary figure Ronaldo Nazario when compared to fellow Brazilians (via HITC).
His performance away at Anfield earned him praise from Jurgen Klopp, who hailed him as the ‘talent of the century’ (via Liverpool).
Fans were adamant that Martinelli deserves to be crowned the club’s player of the month as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
Martinelli as our league form has been horrendous. Happy for Pépé to win too.

I went with Martinelli. Kid works so hard off the ball and obviously a keen eye for goal. And frankly I’ve taken more joy out of the cups than our League performances.
