Arsenal star OUT of Manchester United clash on Monday
Arsenal’s injury curse is going nowhere.
New signing Gabriel witnessed his first ever away start for the Gunners brought to an end following what appeared to be a hamstring injury.
The Brazilian went to the ground after just 35 minutes of action before hobbling back into the dressing room.
Laurent Koscielny was handed a rest at the start of Wednesday night but the Frenchman was called upon to replace the injured Gabriel.
Per Mertesacker, who made a surprise return to the starting line-up against QPR, and Calum Chambers are now Arsenal’s remaining options at centre-back once again.
The Gunners managed to secure a plucky 2-1 victory at Loftus Road as goals from Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez were enough to do the job despite a consolation from Charlie Austin.
However, Arsene Wenger had unfortunate news to confirm at full-time.
