Arsenal striker Gabriel Martinelli was removed from Tuesday’s match against Manchester City with an ankle problem, a bitter blow for a player who only just returned from a long-term knee injury. 

The 19-year-old assisted Alexandre Lacazette’s equaliser in the first half but just before the break, he was involved in a collision with City goalkeeper Zack Steffen that left him writhing in pain on the ground. 

Joe Willock picked out Martinelli with a through ball but Steffen came far off his line to make a sliding clearance, catching the Brazilian’s ankle in the process 

Martinelli eventually returned to the match but was in some pain as the half-time whistle sounded. 

The striker started the second half but was quickly on the ground, signalling he was unable to continue and was replaced by Nicolas Pepe.
