Arsenal fans want Alexandre Lacazette sold to make place for Gabriel Martinelli

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.

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.

The 28-year-old has scored 38 goals in 94 appearances for the Gunners, but the fans feel 5 foot 9 Martinelli should already be ahead of him in the pecking order.

Should Emery strip Xhaka of Arsenal's captaincy?
