Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhaes showed his quality with a superb tackle late on in yesterday’s 1-0 win over Norwich City.
The Gunners have endured a terrible start to the season and desperately needed the three points yesterday as they came up against fellow strugglers Norwich.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the all-important winning goal, but this challenge from Gabriel in the 89th minute was almost as important as a goal, as it looks like the Canaries were sure to score if he hadn’t been there to make the crucial intervention.
Watch below for this brilliant piece of defending that shows how much Arsenal have missed Gabriel at the start of this season…
