Gabriel Magalhaes filmed limping after Arsenal’s loss at PSV in huge injury blow ahead of Nottingham Forest

ARSENAL’S injury fears surrounding Gabriel Magalhaes will not have been eased after he was pictured limping on to the team coach.

Gabriel came on as a late substitute for the 2-0 loss to PSV, but could now miss the game at the weekend against Nottingham Forest if his injury diagnosis comes back badly.

Gabriel is yet to miss a game this season in the Premier League

The Brazilian, who recently signed a new contract at Arsenal, has been a key member of Mikel Arteta’s side this season.

He has appeared in 15 games in all competitions and is yet to miss a Premier League game.

His combative presence alongside William Saliba has helped Arsenal forge a two-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table.

However, if Gabriel’s affliction causes him to miss some games then Arsenal could see that lead quickly evaporate.

Following the game, journalist Sam Dean spotted Gabriel limping down the tunnel “grimacing in pain”.

And the video of Gabriel taken after the game clearly shows that his mobility has been affected.

Arsenal appear to have hit a rough patch of form since their 3-2 victory over Liverpool.

A 1-0 win against Leeds papered over a below-par display before beating PSV convincingly at The Emirates.


However, last weekend Arteta’s side were held to 1-1 draw against Southampton.

Ben White is the most likely candidate to replace Gabriel in the heart of the Gunners defence, while Takehiro Tomiyasu could return to right-back.

Failing that, Cedric could also deputise there with Tomiyasu instead being deployed at left-back – a position he has occupied in each of the last three games.
