‘He should never play for Arsenal again’, Angry fans comment on 26-year-old’s show on Sunday
The irate reactions from fans has certainly not ceased after yet another underwhelming result for Arsenal in the Premier League.
Sunday’s affair saw Gabriel Paulista retain his role alongside Laurent Koscielny at centre-back as the Gunners continue to handle the misfortune of being without key summer signing Shkodran Mustafi.
Before returning from the half-time break with a couple of goals to win the game, Pep Guardiola’s side did manage to carve out a host of dangerous opportunities which troubled Petr Cech in the first half.
Even though Gabriel was not directly culpable for the decisive efforts which Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling produced, it was another game in which Arsenal had failed to keep a clean sheet.
And that did not sit too well with several fans who feel the Brazilian defender might just not be equipped to be starting regularly for the Gunners….
Here were the tweets…
Gabriel should never play for Arsenal again.

Arsenal were due on Silvestre, Squillaci, Chamakh, Park type of signing under Wenger for some time.
Gabriel seems to fit the bill

How embarrassing is Gabriel? Never hated an Arsenal CB more. Mustafi FC needed.

Arsenal fans can analyse it all they want, simple reason they got 0/6 this week – Mustafi injured, Gabriel playing CB

I don't like Gabriel but singling him out for our DF woes is unfair. Arsenal havent kept a clean sheet in the league since 0-0 draw to Boro.
