Martinelli ran behind Trent Alexander-Arnold, who lost his man, and that piled up the pressure on the Reds star on Twitter.
Many expected that the big game would come down to the battles between Alexander-Arnold and the Brazilian down the wing.
Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville already believes Martinelli has got the better of the England international as he said: “Martinelli 1, Alexander-Arnold 0.”
Former Liverpool ace Jose Enrique also appeared to point the blame on the Reds’ defender.
Enrique tweeted: “Is [sic] many mistakes in the goal but Trent at the end….”
And fans flooded social media claiming Martinally already has Alexander-Anrold’s number.
One supporter tweeted: “Martinelli is absolutely spit roasting Trent Alexander Arnold here.”
Another posted: “Alexander Arnold was having a shocker but he was just done by Martinelli there.”
A third wrote: “Trent Alexander-Arnold’s positioning was atrocious for the Martinelli goal. 3 Arsenal players could have got in behind him.”‘
This fan said: “Martinelli looks good only because Alexander-Arnold’s there.”
Andn that one tweeted: “It’ll be interesting to see the contest between Alexander Arnold and Martinelli”
“GOAL! 1 min, Martinelli”
