Young Arsenal striker Gabriel Martinelli was one of the best performers as the Gunners came from behind to beat West Ham United in their London Derby clash in the Premier League.

Martinelli was one of the goalscorers for the Gunners as they battled back from a goal down to beat the Hammers 3-1 in front of their home fans at the London Stadium.

The Brazilian player was given his first start in the Premier League and he didn’t disappoint his manager Freddie Ljungberg as he repaid him with a well taken strike.

Hosts West Ham United had taken the lead with seven first-half minutes remaining through the impressive Angelo Ogbonna as the Hammers were able to establish an halftime lead with that advantage.

Gabriel Martinelli equalized for the Gunners on the hour mark to become the youngest player to score a goal for Arsenal as a Premier League starter at the age of 18 years and 174 days.

It was the eighth goal in all competitions for Gabriel Martinelli this season which happened to be his first campaign in English football.

Nicholas Pepe scored the second Arsenal goal some minutes later before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wrapped up the points for the Gunners in 69th minute.
