Ian Wright and Cesc Fabregas have the same opinion on Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli and how he took his goal during the Premier League win over Newcastle United last weekend.

Reacting to the goal from Martinelli via quotes monitored by English publication Metro, Arsenal legend Wright said that the Brazilian attacker took his goal very well before adding that Newcastle United shot stopper Martin Dubravka should have done better by closing the angle on Martinelli before he guided the cross from right-back TakehiroTomiyasu past him and into the back of the net for his first Arsenal goal this season.

On his part, Cesc Fabregas praised the quality of the strike from Martinellithrough his official Twitter account. According to Cesc Fabregas, it was a very difficult goal to score.

Martinelli has not been able to break into the Arsenal XI this season, but the young attacker took his chance well when he came on for Bukayo Saka in the second half of the Premier League home encounter with Newcastle United. He scored the second Arsenal goal just two minutes after he was introduced into the game. Arsenal had taken the lead through Saka off the assist from the lively Portuguese fullback Nuno Tavares. Saka injured himself when he took the shot that gave the Gunners the lead on 56 minutes and he had to come off for Martinelli who followed in his footsteps by finding the back of the net.

Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe was appointed into the Magpies job last month and he had not made an appearance in the dugout until the Arsenal game due to the fact that he tested positive for COVID-19. In his first game in the Newcastle United dugout, his team frustrated Arsenal in the first half before their resolve was broken with the two goals from Saka and Martinelli as Arsenal sealed a 2-0 win.
