2. Emiliano Martinez

Martinez is like Marmite - You either love him or you hate him. In truth, his final involvement with Arsenal should be enough to make fans love him, since he won the club an FA Cup trophy. However, some of his comments have been questionable about his time with the club. 

Martinez was an incredibly long-serving player with Arsenal, but he was never the standout choice as number one. This is because he played alongside some incredible goalkeepers, but he was always a pretty average second-choice.

He clearly learned a lot from the experienced goalkeepers he played under, though. He left Arsenal to join Aston Villa, where he has had a much more splendid time. Most notably, though, he is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the world for his performance with Argentina in the 2022 World Cup. In the final, he put in a great performance and single-handedly saved his nation. 

It would be nice to see, if his attitude was better. After all, Arsenal gave him a lot.
