Arsenal have won their last 8 Premier League games in which Gabriel started, conceding just 3 goals (0.4 per game). Flip that to their record without him where they've won just 1 of their last 7 Premier League games, conceding 14 goals (2 per game).
It’s great to have a CB who possesses the attributes to deal with any type of forward the PL offers. Whether it’s a quick striker or one that uses physicality, Gabriel can adapt his game accordingly and deal with the threat that comes his way. £27M is a bargain, top player.
Arsenal are winning more duels, more headers and more tackles than they were last season. They are making more blocks and more clearances too.
Gabriel Magalhães: "We want to be a very intense and aggressive defence." Arteta on Gabriel & White: "They played really well at the weekend. The understanding is getting better & the cohesion among the back is getting better, the more they play it will keep improving"
Kevin Campbell: "A lot of people had a dig at White but I thought he did alright [vs Burnley]. Yes the back-pass was short but that can happen. Gabriel is the main man back there though, everyone can see that. He is the main defender Arsenal need. He makes everybody else better"
Gabriel Magalhaes on Arteta: “He is a top guy who is always helping out his players and his staff. He supports us during tough times and I'm very happy to be coached by him. Without doubt, I'm learning a lot from him.”
Gabriel: “The communication in general between the players and the manager is very good. We want to do well for him because that's exactly what he deserves. We see that he enjoys what he does and we want to achieve great things together."
