Gabriel Martinelli must be loving life at the Emirates Stadium at the moment.
The 18-year-old joined the club in the summer from Ituano in a transfer that went under the radar. However, Arsenal fans will certainly know who he is now thanks to his performances in recent weeks.

In just two starts for the Gunners, the Brazilian has scored four goals playing upfront despite generally being a left winger.
He has taken every chance he has been given and the assumption is that there is plenty more to come from him.
Nicolas Pepe, meanwhile, is not having as good a time of it. He has so far managed just one goal and two assists in nine appearances despite being the club’s record signing, and he has also been on the end of some criticism recently.
He has disappointed so much, Arsenal fans actually want to see Martinelli play instead of him on Sunday against Bournemouth.
They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
I think we need to drop Pépé and play Martinelli ?

Tbh Torierra has been decent and is known as a Dm. Chambers and Rob Holding have been decent. He wont start them. Even Pepe should sitout the next game for Martinelli

@MustafiOfficial playing very well with Holding. I think he should be knocking on the first team. Won’t be surprised if he gets another look in d league.Will like to see Holding start, pair Luiz at CB.Sokratis to d bench.Tierney has to start over Kolasinac & Martinelli over Pepe

Martinelli has to start over pepe this weekend for sure!

Not hating on Pépé because I do believe he’ll start performing very soon but I think Martinelli deserves to start over him this weekend in the Premier League!
He’s shown that he’s sharper at the moment and can bang in goals when called upon… Hope to see him play on Sunday! ✌?

Martinelli instead of Pepe

Bring Martinelli in for Pépé and Torreira in for Willock or Ceballos and this is it ??

Martinelli in place of Pepe. Chambers, Mustafi/Holding as my CB pairing. Torreira, Willock and Caballos for me.
