Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Arsenal’s game against Liverpool, Gary Neville thinks Gabriel Martinelli and Trent Alexander-Arnold will play the best game of their careers. Neville also predicts that Martinelli will bring trouble for the England defender: “He (Trent) will have to go up against Martinelli, who I think will bring him a lot of trouble.”

 Martinelli constantly makes the Liverpool defender hard to follow.

Facts prove, Neville’s comments are well-founded. The Gunners star had a great game and caused Neville to stir in the commentary cabin. “This is absolutely amazing thing from Martinelli,” he said.

Meanwhile, former Tottenham defender Jonathan Woodgate, commentator for BBC Radio 5 Live, added: “Gabriel Martinelli is really giving Trent Alexander-Arnold a terrifying time. Arsenal are in a position to be. of the former.”

In fact, Martinelli’s talent has been acknowledged by coach Jurgen Klopp in the past. In a statement in 2019, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp described Martinelli as a “talent of the century” and an “incredible striker”.

In January, the German strategist again said: “Martinelli … I think people should remember that name because he is an excellent player.”
