FC Player of the Day, 3 Oct: Gabriel Martinelli (Arsenal)

The 18-year-old has made a superb start to his career with the Gunners.

Arsenal are already blessed with a raft attacking talent, with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, and Nicolas Pepe lighting up the Emirates going forward.

However, 18-year-old Gabriel Martinelli is staking a claim for a regular spot, not just in the Europa League either. The Argentine scored two and assisted another as the Gunners comfortably dispatched of Standard Liege with a 4-0 win.

His first, top open the scoring, was a bullet header at the front post after latching on to a cross from fellow new signing, Kieran Tierney. The second was even better as he displayed quick feet inside the box to generate enough space for a cracking whipped finish into the right corner.

He then turned provider for the fourth and final goal, bursting to the line before chipping a perfect cross into the centre for Dani Ceballos, who couldn't miss from close range.

The Argentine also won 100% of his attempted tackles and 7/10 duels, so was a real handful for the Belgian side on the night.
