Arsenal: Fans beg for Gabriel Martinelli to start against Manchester City

Arsenal: Fans beg for Gabriel Martinelli to start against Manchester City - Arsenal

Some Arsenal fans are begging Mikel Arteta to start Gabriel Martinelli against Manchester City after the Spanish coach revealed his plans for the game in his pre-match press conference (via Arsenal.com).

The Spanish coach has seemingly revealed that Alexandre Lacazette is in his plans to start the game after impressing off the bench to score the winning goal against West Ham United in the Premier League on the weekend.

With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang likely to start as he is club-captain and Mesut Ozil and Nicolas Pepe being favoured by Arteta in recent matches, there may only be one attacking spot up for grabs in the starting line-up. Arteta has started Eddie Nketiah up front in recent games but with Lacazette’s form as well, it may be difficult for Martinelli to squeeze in.

The Brazilian has managed three goals in the Premier League so far, more than Mesut Ozil and Eddie Nketiah, so he will be hoping his superior goal-scoring record may give him the nod over at least a couple of the attacking players to start against City (via Transfermarkt).

These Arsenal fans have been calling for the 18-year old to start:
