Many Arsenal fans were left raving over Gabriel Martinelli after the youngster scored two goals in three minutes in Arsenal’s 4-0 victory over Standard Liege in the Europa League.
Is Unai Emery the right man for Arsenal?
The ex-Ituano player’s brace comes just over a week after his last brace, which he scored on his full debut for the club in the 5-0 drubbing of Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup.
Manager Unai Emery was full of praise for the 18-year-old, applauding him for taking the opportunities given to him so far in his fledgling career in north London (via Metro).
Martinelli’s rise to stardom at the Emirates Stadium may come as a shock to Premier League rivals Manchester United, who had the player on a series of trials, even playing a friendly game back in 2017 (via The Sun).
Some fans didn’t hold back as they waxed lyrical about Martinelli after his brace as they took to Twitter to send their messages.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:

The guy is almost like a flash..Cutting round a defender like that for the first goal and what a header. I nearly flinged my phone in shock. Man is super fast…he needs a chance at the Premier league.
