Arsenal have got just 1 point in their last 3 games. They lost to Everton following a draw against Brentford and finally another loss to Manchester City. A poor run of form for Gabriel Martinelli has caused concern as Arsenal’s title challenge starts to dwindle.
Gabriel Martinelli hasn’t scored a goal in 2023 as February nears a close. Arsenal will require their attackers to chip in if they want to fight Manchester City for the Premier League. Gabriel Martinelli admits that he “can improve” after going goalless through eight appearances for Arsenal in 2023.
On the back of his latest blank, which came in a 3-1 defeat to fellow title hopefuls Manchester City, Martinelli has said of his form: “I think I can improve. I think everyone in the team can improve. I always try to re-watch the game and see what my mistakes were and try to improve. It’s not going to be different with this game. I am going to re-watch the game and see my mistakes and try to improve for the next game.”
“Mistakes are part of the game, and we need to nail it and try to not make them. It’s easy to say now, when you are here, but when you are on the pitch, it is so much harder. Of course, in a game like this, the team that makes less mistakes are going to win the game, and they won. We are a team. If one [player] makes a mistake, it’s not him, it’s everyone. We are a team.”
Arsenal, who have gone four games without a win in all competitions, will be back in Premier League action on Saturday when taking in a trip to face Aston Villa and former boss Unai Emery.
