In the midst of a promising start to the 2023/24 Premier League season, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta faces a crucial decision ahead of their second game against Crystal Palace this Monday. A recent statistic has shed light on the player who could potentially make a significant impact in this upcoming clash.

According to the data, 22-year-old Gabriel Martinelli has been in scintillating form against Crystal Palace, having scored three goals in his last five Premier League appearances against them. This impressive record makes a strong case for Arteta to include Martinelli in his starting lineup.

Arsenal kicked off their campaign with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest, currently placing them in fourth position on the Premier League table. However, Arteta will be well aware that consistency is key if they are to challenge for silverware this season.

Martinelli’s ability to find the back of the net against Crystal Palace could prove invaluable for Arsenal’s attacking prowess. His pace, agility, and clinical finishing make him a potent threat that could unlock Palace’s defense and secure another vital victory for the Gunners.

As Monday’s showdown approaches, all eyes will be on Arteta as he contemplates whether to unleash Martinelli and capitalize on his remarkable record against Crystal Palace. Only time will tell if this statistical insight will influence Arteta’s team selection and ultimately lead Arsenal to triumph once again.
