Arsenal defender Bellerin: More to Martinelli than just talent

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has hailed the attitude of Gabriel Martinell after last night's draw at Chelsea.

Both players scored in the 2-2 draw.

And captain for the night Bellerin said of his teenage teammate: “A lot of people talk about his talent, but what people don't see is that Gabi is a professional.

“He turns up early every day. He does all the stuff anyone asks him to do. He leaves everything on the pitch. The goals are just a plus.

“He helps us in every single way and the thing that everyone needs to praise him for is his attitude. That is what makes him [such] a player.

“He is obviously really young, so many things can happen, but if he keeps his head where it is right now, he is going to go really far."
