When asked to rank Martinelli’s performance among his other displays, Arteta told his post-match press conference: ‘Well certainly it was one of the best in every aspect of the game. 

‘He was cramping again and he needs to mature in that sense but his overall understanding of the game is getting much better. 

‘He’s able to put some gears into his play. Sometimes he’s still doing everything at 100 miles per hour but the energy and quality he shows at times is top.’
