We only lost to Manchester United – Gabriel Martinelli rates Arsenal’s chance of winning title
Gabriel Martinelli, a forward for Arsenal, thinks the North London club has a chance to win the Premier League championship this year.
Martinelli claims that the only team Arsenal has lost to so far this year is Manchester United, and he also claims that if his goal against the Red Devils hadn't been disallowed, the Gunners' season might have come to a very different conclusion.
The 21-year-old Brazilian has had an outstanding start to the year, scoring three goals to aid Mikel Arteta's team in moving up to the top of the Premier League.
With a 3-1 victory over their London rivals last weekend, Arsenal moved into first place in the Premier League, one point ahead of second-placed Manchester City.
Obviously, this is just the beginning of the season, but since last year we knew he had a young team, so this is a project. And we are beginning to reap what has been sown, "Martinelli told The Times."
We know we can achieve very big things, so we must keep the focus and the grit to try to achieve things this year because I think we have a chance.
“We have only lost to Manchester United, but if my goal hadn't been disallowed, things might have ended very differently for us.”
Arsenal will now face Bodo/Glimt in the Europa League on Thursday night before returning to domestic action on Sunday against Liverpool at the Emirates.
