Speaking to Premier League media after the match, Martinelli said, “He’s a great guy. Not just him, but the whole team we are a family. Bukayo has been playing so well, he’s a brilliant player. I love to play with him.”
The win against Crystal Palace was Arsenal’s sixth consecutive victory in the Premier League and saw them go eight points clear at the top of the league table. Martinelli opened the scoring for Arsenal in the 28th minute with a brilliant strike after being set up by Saka.
Saka then doubled Arsenal’s lead just before half-time with a neat finish. The 21-year-old midfielder continued his impressive form in the second half, scoring his second goal of the match with a stunning first-time strike after a cross from Kieran Tierney.
In conclusion, Gabriel Martinelli’s comments about Bukayo Saka highlight not only their strong partnership on the field but also their close relationship off it. The young duo have been instrumental in Arsenal’s recent success and will be key players for them going forward this season.
