Gabriel Martinelli craves for Arsenal to stay at the top of the Premier League table

Gabriel Martinelli is determined to ensure Arsenal remain at the Premier League summit after the Gunners secured top spot with a narrow victory over Wolves in the midweek fixtures.

Mikel Arteta’s side emerged as 2-1 winners at the Emirates Stadium, with early goals from Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard enough to secure the points. This is despite a nervy end following Matheus Cunha’s late goal that halved the deficit.

Arsenal had previously moved to the top with a victory at Brentford the previous weekend. But now, they find themselves in the desired position. Last season, Arsenal led the table for 248 days before being overtaken by eventual champions Manchester City in the closing stages.

This marked the longest period a side has been at the Premier League summit without winning the title. Now, Gabriel Martinelli is determined to avoid any Arsenal similar slip-ups this time.

“We know we are top of the Premier League now,” he said.

“We want to be there; we want to be top of the Premier League for the rest of the season. We’ll try our best.

“We tried our best (against Wolves), we kept going, we didn’t start to play like it was already won.

“As I said, we tried our best to score another goal, but we didn’t score. But the most important thing is three points.”
