‘One Of His Best Performances’ ‘Gives Me The VVD Vibe’ Fans Praise Arsenal Star For His Part In Olympiakos Win

Arsenal centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes scored a vital goal, and also came up with an assist, as the Gunners secured a 3-1 win over Olympiakos last night.

The Brazilian was surprisingly selected ahead of the in-form Pablo Mari for the game by Mikel Arteta but the manager’s faith was repaid with an excellent performance.

As well as scoring with a pinpoint accurate header to put Arsenal 2-1 up, Gabriel was also awarded the assist for Mohamed Elneny’s long-range strike which sealed victory. Fans on Twitter were delighted with the defender’s display:


It will be interesting to see who Arteta starts in the North London derby this weekend. Both Gabriel and Pablo Mari are left-footed so there isn’t room for both in the back four.

Whoever is given the nod, though, we should expect them to put in a great performance, considering their recent form. Arteta won’t be complaining about having some positive selection dilemmas for once.
