'Martinelli has no fear... he goes and he goes'


Freddie Ljungberg hailed Gabriel Martinelli's stamina after the teenage Brazilian shone on his first Premier League start.

The 18-year-old scored a fine equaliser in our 3-1 win at West Ham, but also caught the eye with his tireless work up and down the left flank.

Martinelli was gasping for breath after one particularly lung-busting run after his goal, but he kept going and finished the match strongly.

"Gabi is a fantastic player," said Ljungberg.

"He's still very young but he has that energy about him and he goes and he goes. He has no fear and he just keeps on going.

"So it's a pleasure to see him there on that pitch, and for him to get the success that he did today, it gives you a smile to your face."
