Arsenal and Unai Emery will be gutted not to have beaten Liverpool on Wednesday in the League Cup despite scoring five goals.
The Reds eventually won the fourth-round tie on penalties, but that was only after a 5-5 draw in normal time.
Such high-scoring games seem to be something of a running theme in this fixture. For example, many will remember the 4-4 draw in 2009 when former Russia international Andrey Arshavin scored all of the Emirates Stadium outfit’s goals.
Watch the moment Granit Xhaka’s Arsenal career may have come to an ugly end in the video below…
This time around, it was Gabriel Martinelli who stood out for Emery’s team. The Brazilian scored twice, taking his tally for the campaign to seven in all competitions. What makes that even more impressive is the fact he has started just four games.
Such has been his impressive form, the club’s supporters are now calling for the club to sell 16-time France international Alexandre Lacazette, who they signed for £46.5m from Lyon in July of 2017.
They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.

Honestly we should sell Lacazette, we have Martinelli

Honestly, I’d sell Lacazette to make room for Martinelli at this point. We can make a good amount of money off Laca, plus Laca won’t take time away from GM after Auba leaves/retires. Martinelli’s a lot more clinical and versatile, as Laca thrives when he can join build-up play.
