Arsenal fans eager to see Martinez start in goal tonight

Arsenal fans eager to see Martinez start in goal tonight

Tonight will see Arsenal return to Europa League action and after they overcame Vorskla 4-2 at The Emirates in their opener they’ll be desperate to make it two wins from two when they travel to Baku to face Qarabag tonight. With Petr Cech injured, Bernd Leno will be starting in the Premier League and the fans are keen to see third-choice Emiliano Martinez start later.

If Unai Emery does give Martinez a go in goal the 26-year-old Argentine then it could well spell the end for Petr Cech. The 26-year-old is easily capable of impressing and if he performs in the cups and the Europa League and Bernd Leno builds on his form in the Premier League then it could see Cech drop to being the club’s third choice behind both of his fellow goalkeepers.

That, of course, is very unlikely. It’s not out of the question though and just across North London Tottenham have seen a 26-year-old Argentine third-choice goalkeeper raise his stock in the form of Paulo Gazzaniga, who has impressed in the absence of both Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm. Martinez will be hoping to take inspiration from Gazzaniga and make a start tonight, with the fans keen to see what he can do against Qarabag later.
