Arsenal was disappointed when they lost to Brighton 0-3 at the Emirates Stadium. Accordingly, Julio Enciso, Deniz Undav and Pervis Estupinan scored, making the chance of winning the Premier League out of reach of the Gunners. They are 4 points behind Man City and kick more than 1 match, while the season only has 2 more rounds to end.
Not only losing against Brighton, Arsenal also received a huge loss when Gabriel Martinelli left the field after only 20 minutes. Martinelli was cut down by Moises Caicedo in a destructive fashion. The Arsenal striker suffered severe pain after the collision and was unable to continue playing. Moises Caicedo also did not receive a card from the referee for his foul situation. The Brazilian was replaced by Leandro Trossard.
After the game, Martinelli was even seen walking around the field wearing a protective boot. The latest, David Ornstein confirmed Martinelli’s injury is quite severe. Accordingly, he cannot continue to play in the remaining 2 matches this season.
Thus, Martinelli is the third Arsenal player to leave the season early, after William Saliba and Takehiro Tomiyasu. In the remaining 2 matches of the season Arsenal will face Nottingham Forest and Wolves. When Martinelli is not on the pitch, Leandro Trossard will replace him playing alongside Jesus and Saka.
