Arsenal star Gabriel Martinelli is set to become one of the best in the world after a dazzling derby show

The Brazil international shone again in the 3-1 North London derby win over Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium.

Martinelli gave a trademark display of pure energy and skill as top-flight Arsenal moved four points clear at the top of the Premier League with their seventh victory in eight top-flight matches so far this quarter, also claiming an assist for Xhaka’s goal and drawing a reckless challenge from Emerson Royal which led to a red card for the Spurs full-back.

The 21-year-old has been unlucky not to add to his three goals so far this season against Tottenham and continues to go from strength to strength under Mikel Arteta, with Xhaka tipping him to the top if he continues to work hard .

“Gabriel Martinelli has a lot to do to be one of the best,” the Swiss midfielder told BBC Sport. “He’s going 100 miles an hour. He has to push himself as far as he can go. He has the team and all around to help him.

“When Mikel arrived three years ago he said he needed time and you can see the results. We have a great team with a lot of potential and we are showing it on the pitch.

“We have a different type of spirit and mentality in the team and you can see that.”
