Arteta’s decision to bring Saka and Martinelli on late
With Arsenal down 3-0 in the 66th minute, the game was as good as gone, so the general thought was to rest/leave the stars that were on the bench out of the game.
But in an odd situation, Arteta brought both Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli on in an attempt to salvage something from the game.
In truth, Arsenal never looked like beating West Ham, and Arteta might have missed a chance to give Saka and Martinelli a vital break. One could only imagine if either player picked up an injury.
