Arsenal fans loving Gabriel as impressive stat shows his impact

Arsenal fans loving Gabriel as an impressive stat has surfaced.

The Brazilian defender has come in and reformed the Gunners’ defence this season.

In fact, in Arsenal’s last seven games in which Gabriel has started the club have won all seven, kept five clean sheets and conceded twice.

The 23-year-old has partnered with Ben White in the last two games for Arsenal to great effect.

The Gunners have won 1-0 against Norwich and Burnley, turning around their poor start to the season.

Gabriel’s underlying numbers have been sublime too.

In his two games this season he’s made 5 tackles, 5 blocks and 12 clearances (WhoScored).

Those numbers giving further evidence as to the impressive performances we’ve seen from the player.

The next step for Gabriel will be to keep these performances coming.

In Arsenal’s next Premier League game they’ll be up against Tottenham.

That will give Gabriel a serious test.

Not only will he have to win the physical battle with Harry Kane, but he’ll need to be wary of the clever runs in behind from Heung-Min Son.

Should Gabriel and co secure a win by two goals or more then Arsenal will rise above Spurs in the table.

That’s one hell of a feat given just two games ago Arsenal were bottom of the table whilst Spurs were top.

Gabriel will certainly be key to getting three points and if he can help his side to another clean sheet it would improve his numbers.

This comes as White and Gabriel continue to put together a formidable partnership in defence under Mikel Arteta.
