Gabriel Martinelli got involved with a nice fan Q&A this evening and gave some surprising answers to some of the questions coming his way.
The Brazilian forward has been outstanding so far this season and it was his performance which led to Emerson Royal chopping him down to see red at the weekend. Martinelli is now a starter every week for the Gunners and will be hoping to make a push for the Brazil squad for Qatar at this rate.
Of course, beyond being a good footballer, Martinelli also seems a decent chap. He loves to get involved on social media and this open forum with supporters over on Twitter was a nice touch.
And interestingly for Arsenal fans, when answering a question on who is the funniest player off the field, Martinelli gave a fairly surprising answer by naming Fabio Vieira.
Vieira is a new addition at Arsenal. Having signed in the summer, he’s yet to cement his place in the Arsenal XI and has actually only played 185 minutes of football all season.

A good squad is not always about those who are playing week in, week out. Sometimes it’s about coming in and offering what you can when you’re not in the team and this suggests Vieira is doing that.
Being a character in the dressing room is always a huge bonus and every good squad has them. Vieira’s time on the field will come, but for now, he needs to just keep doing what he’s doing it seems.
