Gabriel makes big claim in reaction to Arsenal defeat


Arsenal suffered a 3-0 defeat against Aston Villa on Sunday and that seems to have gotten at Brazilian international Gabriel Magalhaes which forced his reaction.

This defeat is a setback to the North London outfit as they were on the road to achieving a level of consistency in their results. Now the team have been set back in their bid to secure a top-four finish to be able to qualify for the Champions League next season.

The new Arsenal defender said he and the rest of Arsenal’s squad are ‘very sad’ about the defeat and assured that the team will ‘work hard’ to fix the problems that led to their defeat at the Emirates Stadium.

In his post on his Instagram post on Monday night. Gabriel said, “Very sad about yesterday’s result, But it will not affect us, we will work hard to improve in all aspects!”

Gabriel Magalhaes has been impressive since he joined Arsenal to have won the Player of The Month award in September. He is not on the blacklist of the fans as he is satisfied to have given his best to the club.

The Brazilian insists Arsenal’s players will move ahead after the defeat and ensure they give a positive response when actions resume after the international break.

Meanwhile, the Gunners boss Mikel Arteta said he would be taken full responsibility for the result while admitting that is team were ‘sloppy’ and ‘very vulnerable’ in the game.

“After that obviously we perform below our standards and I have to say since I was Arsenal manager it was the first time I’ve seen us play and we were not a team”

Howbeit, the North London outfit still have a perfect record in the Europa League and that could be an opportunity to make it to the UEFA Champions League if they emerge champions.
