Martinez has been named on the Arsenal substitute bench for their fixtures away at Stoke City on 26 August 2012 and against Liverpool on 2 September 2012 as Wojciech Szczęsny and Łukasz Fabiański were injured at the time and at Southampton on 1 January 2013.

On 26 September 2012, Martínez made his Arsenal début in a 3rd Round League Cup tie at home to Coventry City. He then made his second Arsenal appearance in the following round in a 7–5 win away at Reading in which Arsenal were 4–0 down.
