They may not have been teammates for long, but Kieran Tierney and Gabriel Martinelli already seem to be on the same wavelength.
For the second Europa League game in a row, the Scot delivered a cross for the Brazilian to head home, this time to help the Gunners get on level terms against a sprightly Vitoria.
Arsenal went on to win the game 3-2 courtesy of two stunning free-kicks by substitute Nicolas Pepe and are now in a commanding position to qualify from Group F.
After the game, Tierney said he’s been impressed by his fellow new arrivals.
“I love playing with Gabi, even in training as well – but I hate playing against him!” he told Arsenal.com. “He’s a great player.
“You can see how clinical he is in front of goal. He’s good at everything – there’s not a negative I can say about Gabi. He’s got the lot.”
On Pepe, he added: “That just shows you he is a special player, and in a moment like that he can produce a bit of magic. That’s what we needed.
“It will be massive for him, it’s a hard place to come and hit the ground running. It’s a massive club, in a massive league. He deserves that because he’s been working hard every single day.”
