Arsenal won on penalties against Liverpool tonight in the EFL Cup, in what was a good performance on the night from Mikel Arteta’s men.
The Gunners were defensively solid and despite putting out a team consisting of a number of young players, looked largely at ease with what the Arsenal boss wanted them to do.
A number of players impressed on the night, including goalkeeper Bernd Leno, who made a number of fine saves in the Arsenal goal.
However, it was the performance of summer signing, Gabriel Magalhaes, which caught the eye of a number of fans on Twitter.
The Brazilian kept Mo Salah relatively quite throughout and must surely be in with a chance of taking David Luiz’s place when the Gunners face Sheffield United on Sunday.
With that, here’s a look at how some Arsenal fans reacted to Gabriel’s display at Anfield.
Gabriel best player on the pitch

the fact that gabriel’s played less than 5 games for arsenal and has already become one of our best players is phenomenal
