‘Very exciting stuff’: Some fans are delighted to see one Arsenal star back in the squad
A number of Arsenal fans have expressed their excitement over the return of one of the Gunners’ key attacking players ahead of the showdown against Manchester United on Wednesday evening.
Even though Arsenal managed to secure their first win in two months at the start of December as they came from behind to beat West Ham 3-1 at the London stadium, the team continued to struggle to pick up points in the Premier League.
New boss Mikel Arteta will be hoping to have most of his best players available at least, to help any chances of a revival before the end of the season.
And ahead of the clash with Manchester United, the Gunners have welcomed back Gabriel Martinelli, who had missed the last two games due to a slight injury.
The Brazilian is now one of the most important players in the team and his return will be vital, considering the fact that several other attackers in the Arsenal starting eleven are currently struggling.
Very exciting stuff. Martinelli back at a time that Nelson and Laca are struggling. Put him straight back into the line-up, Arteta!

Martinelli back is a big deal. Perfect for what Arteta wants his wide men to do. https://t.co/MsHMZsUeiT

Martinelli gets a start for me because of his work rate alone.
(Also because Lacazette is a bit poop at the moment)

Quite curious to see martinelli back fit and how much arteta leans into him, seems his sort of player, all energy and a massively enthusiasm for the game and will to learn.
That may be where we see auba or Laca dropped in favour of team balance.
