Martinelli OUT and replaced by Nelson as Arsenal suffer huge injury blow in warm-up for FA Cup clash with Newcastle – Bukipress


- Advertisment -

ARSENAL have been dealt a huge injury blow with Gabriel Martinelli injured in the warm-up and replaced in the team.

The Brazilian striker appeared to turn his ankle as he was going through some drills, and he has been replaced by Reiss Nelson for the FA Cup third round clash against Newcastle.


This was the horror moment Martinelli injured himself in the warm-up
The young Brazilian collapsed to the floor in pain

Martinelli had just mad a successful interception when he collapsed to the floor in obvious agony.

His team-mates, including Mo Elneny, appeared mystified as to how the 19-year-old had injured himself.

But it was serious enough for Gunners boss Mikel Arteta to be forced to make a last-minute change to his line-up.

Martinelli is only just returning to the first-team fold after months out with a serious knee injury.

Although it appeared that the striker turned his ankle, the strain it might have put on his knee will leave the Gunners sweating that it could be another serious injury.
