Gabriel Martinelli goal vs Chelsea: Arsenal teenager runs past a slipping N’Golo Kante to score a beauty in the London Derby at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea and Arsenal played an explosive match at the Stamford Bridge tonight to light the Premier league up. The two London sides never go easy on each other and it was no different tonight. The match would eventually end at a fair but fiercely fought 2-2.
The Blues had taken the lead earlier in the match though a first half penalty. However, teenage sensation, Gabriel Martinelli had other ideas and helped the Gunners equalise following a phenomenal effort that saw the teenager run from his own half all the way to Chelsea’s third!

Shkodran Mustafi, the man responsible for David Luiz being sent off and Chelsea subsequentially scoring, began Arsenal’s charge after clearing a corner with his head. The ball found Martinelli and never left him as he made his way towards the other end.
N’Golo Kante was Chelsea’s last line of defence and it seemed that he would bring a halt to the teenager’s run. Instead, the French slipped, allowing Martinelli to run past him and eventually score the equaliser. In the process, he became the first teenager to score 10+ goals across all competitions for Arsenal in a single season since Nicolas Anelka in 1998/99.
Ten-man Arsenal level thanks to an ❄️cool finish from Gabriel Martinelli!
