Gabriel Martinelli: Top Tear

Is Martinelli’s comeback this ahead of schedule?

Exciting if true. Hope it’s not a case of rushing him back and risking injury again.

They took the longer, more reliable route with his rehab, apparently, to make sure he recovers properly, so at this point he must be ok to be training.

Looks like he's in full training. Saw a pic of him challenging for a header Vs Gabriel

Really hope he is back and doesn't have any recurring problems, could be tailor made for the way Arteta wants to play.

How is that exactly, you do realize Arteta dropped him before he was injured ?, Don't think Arteta's fettish for Nketiah will allow him to give anyone else a chance.

When did he get injured?

Can't really remember, he was playing for Arteta quite a lot at one point though.

Nketiah isn't even starting ahead of Laca so I don't see your point. Lets hope Martinelli jumps ahead of both!

It was a training injury in March.

Edit. I just checked and they said 7 months so Oct/Nov is correct.

He wasn't. Played in Aubas absence and scored. Then when Auba came back he got dropped and barely featured.

Arteta prefers Nketiah at cf. I fully expect Martinelli to be used sparingly and when he is used, it will probably be on the right where he is least effective.

Which would mean he is either playing from the right or at cf. Most likely cf as it looks like he is backing into him. Interesting....

Ok. I think Arteta has since cooled a bit on Nketiah, I know I have. He doesn't seem to be giving him as many minutes now. When Martinelli is back I'm not too fussed if he plays left or CF, as long as he plays. I think eventually he will be a CF.

He’s got the potential to break goalscoring records as a 9 in my honest opinion. His movement in and around the box is frighteningly good. As a winger he’s just another guy doing a job for the team.

I hope we don’t waste him.
