What did Gabriel say?
Asked to sum up his time at Arsenal so far, Gabriel told Premier League Productions: ‘Well in my first season I certainly learned a lot.
‘It’s been a real challenge here and I am more and more settled every day. I feel better and better with each passing game.

‘But I feel good, I feel at home at Arsenal. It’s a great squad to be a part of and together I am sure we can achieve a lot. I am very happy here.’

‘Reaching the top four is our aim, but we know how tough it will be,’ Gabriel added. ‘It’s a big challenge but I do believe we can get there.
“We are working hard and it’s the target we want to achieve. We have to stick together. We need to be focused to get good results.’
