Gabriel Martinelli opens up on key Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Arsenal moment

In a recent interview with The Players’ Tribune, Martinelli explained his decision to snub Manchester United and Barcelona to join Arsenal, describing a touching moment between himself and Aubameyang after he arrived at the Emirates Stadium in 2019. The Brazil international said: “I remember that I went to lunch, there was, for example, where I was afraid because I didn’t speak English.

“I would think, ‘Imagine if someone sat next to me and talked to me, what would I say? I was embarrassed, right, because the person speaks, you want to speak, but you can’t.

“I sat down to eat, and then Aubameyang arrived. I thought, ‘now what?’ Then he sat down next to me and started talking to me in Spanish.

“A good guy, I think that moment… I was very nervous. Like for him, it was something normal. Maybe he doesn’t even remember this, but for me, arriving at the club now, Auba coming to talk to you, sitting at the table with you, it was something that will stay with me forever.”

Arsenal deserve to lead the Premier League title race ahead of Man City

For the first time since August 28, 2021 (443 days ago), City do not lead the ‘Justice Table’ rankings, a key statistical measure of determining where Premier League teams should be placed in the table. Arsenal have narrowly out-performed Pep Guardiola’s side this season, with the Gunners having accumulated 0.14 Expected Points more than City.

Arteta will be hoping his team can continue their brilliant form after the World Cup heading into a crucial period of fixtures to start the second half of the season.
