Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Gabriel's display at Manchester City

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to laud Gabriel Magalhaes’s performance for the Gunners as they were beaten 1-0 at Manchester City on Saturday.

Mikel Arteta’s side showed some further promising signs at the Etihad Stadium. And they certainly had the chances to find an equaliser during the second-half.

They definitely had a case for a penalty in the final moments of the first-half. Kyle Walker raised his foot as Gabriel headed the ball towards goal. Interestingly, the officials showed little interest in checking the decision as everyone left the field for the interval.

Gabriel did not get that particular decision. But there is no question that he can be incredibly happy with his performance against the Cityzens.

The 22-year-old has made an incredibly bright start to life at the Emirates. And he was arguably one of Arsenal’s best performers on Saturday.

As shown by, he completed the most successful passes of any Arsenal player in the loss. He also made two clearances and one interception.

Understandably, there was plenty of disappointment amongst Gunners fans on social media after the full-time whistle. However, many still praised Gabriel.

Several are clearly convinced that he has already claimed a spot in Arsenal’s best backline. It is certainly looking as though his £23.1 million fee (via BBC Sport) is going to prove to be an absolute bargain for Arteta’s men.

Here is how some of the fans reacted to his display this weekend…
