And Gunners legend Martin Keown wants Arteta to ‘explain’ why Martinelli has been overlooked since his return to fitness.
“One player we’ve not mentioned in all this is Gabriel Martinelli,” Keown said.
“If I was his father or his family, I’m really disappointed for him because he’s not getting any football and he’s a great talent.
“Again, I don’t know why that is, that needs explaining.
“If he’s fit enough to sit on the bench, he’s fit enough to get on. When they’re winning games that’s fine, but I think he’s a talent, a great talent.”
