Tonight could see Arsenal finish in the top four as Mikel Arteta’s side visit Tottenham Hotspur in a massive North London derby.

Victory would see the Gunners qualify for the Champions League for the very first time since the 2015-16 campaign – and also finish ahead of Spurs for the first time since that season.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta will be looking to his best players to record a major Premier League win away to Tottenham – and one of them is certainly Gabriel Martinelli.

The 20-year-old Brazilian has been excellent for the Gunners throughout the second half of the campaign, having struggled for regular football earlier in the season.

But he’s certainly one of the players who make the Emirates Stadium club tick and Martinelli goes into tonight’s encounter with something of a feel-good factor.

Martinelli has been named in Brazil’s senior squad for upcoming friendlies against South Korea and Japan – and former Arsenal goalkeeper Emi Martinez has appeared to congratulate his old teammate in North London.

The young forward sent an Instagram message after the promotion, writing: “Very proud to be called up again for the Brazilian National Team. The feeling of wearing this shirt is always an honor. From dreams to reality.”

And the Aston Villa keeper responded by writing ‘Craque’, which is slang taken to mean ‘star’.

If Arsenal finish in the top four….

The more Martinelli impresses, the more desperate Arsenal will be to extend his contract.

The Ituano-raised starlet, who cost the Londoners £6 million in 2019, is out of contract in 2024 and with that only being two years away, the club are determined to tie him down to longer terms, as reported by Fabrizio Romano in April.

And if Arteta’s side go ahead and seal their Champions League qualification tonight, securing a top-four finish, well that’ll be a massive incentive for Martinelli to want to stick around.
