Arsenal legend, Martin Keown and former Bayern Munich midfielder, Owen Hargreaves have criticised Gabriel Martinelli for a missed chance in the Gunners’ defeat against the Bundesliga giants.

Arsenal travelled to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash on Wednesday.
.
The first leg ended in a 2-2 draw last week at the Emirates Stadium, North London.

Martinelli had an excellent opportunity to put the Gunners ahead in the first half after being played in by Martin Odegaard.

The Brazilian chose to shoot with his weaker left foot and the shot was comfortable for Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

Arsenal legend Martin Keown reflected on the opportunity and said on TNT Sports, “He [Martinelli] has picked up a really good position there, just waiting and you think why would you hit that with your left foot?

“You’re a right-footed player and he’s coming on to that, perfect angle, lovely approach play. Surely you’d hit that with your right foot?”

Hargreaves added to the conversation, saying: “I think if he gets that back he hits that with his right. He can see it coming and you always want to hit that with your good foot.

“In the end he just wants to make contact and get it on goal, because sometimes you say pass it in the goal, but he needs to hit that with his right foot. If he hits it with his right I think it’s a goal.”
