Arsenal defender Gabriel looked “in pain” when he headed down the tunnel after the defeat to PSV Eindhoven on Thursday night, according to the Daily Telegraph reporter Sam Dean.
The journalist said he witnessed the Brazilian limping, suggesting that the player may have picked up some sort of leg injury:
Gabriel Magalhaes limped down the tunnel at the end of the game. Looked to be grimacing in pain.

Gabriel didn’t start against PSV, but he did play the final fifteen minutes after replacing Kieran Tierney. It would be a big setback for manager Mikel Arteta if he has suffered an injury setback.
The 24-year-old has been almost ever present in the starting lineup this season, with the game at the Philips Stadion being only the second match where he hasn’t played the full 90 minutes.
The Gunners face Nottingham Forest at the Emirates on Sunday, and we will probably find out a lot more about the seriousness of the injury that Gabriel has sustained when Arteta holds his pre-match press conference.
