Interesting. Martinelli was outstanding at the start of this season so maybe he’s dropped off a bit. Yeah they’re bound to start him in the cup. But if they get Lazy Leandro in that game?Having checked out Trossard twitter and a few Arsenal forums, just to see what they thought of his cameo, the one consistent thing I read was how they think he absolutely should be starting ahead of Martinelli right now.
Clearly their perspective is based on a very short, but bright, cameo, but it does also sound as though Martinelli hasn't been fully at it of late and may appreciate a breather. Like us, their next game is in the Cup (Man City away - good luck with that), so he has to have a good chance of starting there. If he does well, maybe he will earn a spot for their next league game (Everton away).
