Arsenal: Fans praise Gabriel Martinelli as he tops the charts for scoring teens in Europe

Arsenal fans have credited their Brazilian striker Gabriel Martinelli after becoming the leading teenage goalscorer across the major leagues in Europe.

The Brazilian has scored three more goals than any youngster in Europe as he continues to leave his mark on the Premier League.

He scored a brace during their side’s exit from the Carabao Cup after drawing 5-5 after normal time but eventually lost 5-4 on penalties after Dani Ceballos saw his spot-kick saved.

Martinelli, 18, signed for the Gunners for an undisclosed fee during the summer and is producing the goods in the cup competitions.

After his first seven games for Arsenal, he sits above the likes of Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho and Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix as the top-scoring teen across the big leagues.

Gunners’ fans responded in their waves and applauded the Brazilian for his efforts this season.

Here are some of the best comments from Arsenal fans:
