You’re working hard, getting better – Darren Bent hails Arsenal star
Gabriel Martinelli, a forward for Arsenal, has received high praise from former Tottenham Hotspur player Darren Bent.
Martinelli is putting in a lot of effort, according to Bent, and improving daily.
He puts in a lot of effort and is very direct. That's the thing—every time he receives the ball, you just know that something big is about to happen. Either he gets by someone or he attempts to score. According to Bent, who spoke to Premier League Productions, "He just gives them such an outlet and seems to be getting better and better."
I always used to think, at times, he was quick. But the end product wasn’t there. I think he is showing it now. When he gets into the final areas, 9/10 times, he is choosing the right decision. He is playing really, really well; it’s probably the best I have seen him in an Arsenal shirt. "
Martinelli has made a great start to the 2022–2023 campaign at Arsenal.
He has scored four goals and provided two assists in eleven Premier League appearances for Mikel Arteta’s side this season.
