READ ARSENAL VERDICT
After nine games without a win, Arsenal needed to change something to turn their fortunes around. Nicolas Pepe, Kieran Tierney and Martinelli have all come in, with the latter making his full league debut after excelling in the cup competitions.
It will be great to see Martinelli grasp his chance with both hands and hopefully score his first Premier League goal. The young forward is one for the future, but he could prove tonight that he is one for the present as well!
