Following Arsenal’s breathtaking 4-3 triumph over Luton Town on Tuesday night, Gabriel Martinelli made the victory even more special by sharing a heartwarming celebration with his father, Joao, at Kenilworth Road.

Martinelli opened the scoring in the 20th minute of the match, setting the stage for a dramatic encounter. Despite Luton equalising twice through Gabriel Osho and Elijah Adebayo while briefly taking the lead with a Ross Barkley goal in the 57th minute, Arsenal clawed back with Kai Havertz finding the net and it was Declan Rice’s 97th-minute header that secured the exhilarating win for Mikel Arteta’s side.

Amid the jubilant scenes that followed Rice’s decisive goal, Martinelli spotted his father among the ecstatic away supporters. Seizing the moment, he rushed towards his dad in the stands, capturing the emotional celebration on social media. 

Posting a video of the heartfelt reunion, Martinelli expressed his joy, writing: “A goal and a last-minute winner with your dad in the away end? Perfect.”

This season has seen Arsenal display a knack for late-game heroics, securing vital goals in the dying minutes against formidable opponents like Manchester United, Manchester City, Brentford, and now Luton. Their ability to strike late has become a defining trait, elevating the team’s status as genuine title contenders.

Martinelli’s first-half strike marked his second league goal of the season, complementing his contributions in the Champions League that helped Arsenal progress to the knockout stages.

Looking ahead, it remains uncertain whether Martinelli Sr will attend Arsenal’s next fixture against Aston Villa. Martinelli himself holds fond memories of Villa Park, having secured a memorable victory for Arsenal in his last visit by scoring a late goal back in February, a moment that undoubtedly lingers in the young forward’s mind as he gears up for another crucial clash.
