Arsenal: What January business do they need to do?
Arsenal saw off Chelsea 3-1 on Saturday evening to get their season back on track somewhat, and Brazilian forward Gabriel Martinelli caused the Blues all sorts of problems at the back with his terrific energy. The teenager has taken a cheeky swipe at N’Golo Kante with his latest Instagram story.
Arsenal star Gabriel Martinelli has trolled N’Golo Kante by posting an embracing photo of the Chelsea midfielder on Instagram.
The Gunners saw off the Blues 3-1 on Saturday evening to get their season back on track.
The fit-again Martinelli played an important role, keeping the Chelsea defence on the back foot for much of the game, as well as registering four shots on goal.
And one picture showed Kante failing to keep up with the Brazilian attacker as he appeared to stretch out an arm from the ground to pull him back.
The snap had already become popular on social media.
But Martinelli took a little swipe at Kante and Chelsea by posting it on his own Instagram story while tagging Arsenal’s official account.
The light hearted jab will no doubt go down very well with fans, and keep the spark in the rivalry between the two clubs.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta praised Martinelli and his link up play with left-back Kieran Tierney after the win over Chelsea.
“I think both of them were really good, really good understanding, a lot of energy, really good communication and courage as well,” Arteta said.
“They were really positive every time we were attacking, with the runs, playing forward, they were both involved in a lot of good attacking actions so I am really pleased with them.”

Meanwhile, Sky Sports commentator Gary Neville was highly complimentary of his energy on the pitch.
“Very, very good,” Neville said on air. “Not just in his play, but in his desire.
“He’s been outstanding; really hungry out there.”
