The 18-year-old Brazilian forward has had a superb start to his Gunners career but Arteta has urged supporters not to get too carried away
Mikel Arteta is eager for Arsenal attacker Gabriel Martinelli to continue developing in the same way and warned not to burden the teenager with unnecessary pressure.
The 18-year-old scored in the 2-2 draw at Chelsea on Tuesday, racing clear from inside his own half before showing great composure to find the net.
It was Martinelli’s 10th goal of the campaign and made him the first teenager to reach double figures in a season for Arsenal since Nicolas Anelka.
After signing from Ituano in the summer, there was little expectation on the forward, but he has emerged as a real plus point and recently filled the void of the suspended Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang by netting in the Gunners last two matches.
