For me you get a clean sheet, you score on your debut, you come in and are as dominant as he was.‘I know he wasn’t asked too many questions, but he’s my Man of the Match. Really happy to see a player of that quality going into the Arsenal defence.’Gabriel lined up in the centre of Arsenal’s back three against Fulham with Rob Holding and Kieran Tierney either side of him, while fellow debutant Willian also performed well and was involved in all three goals.AdvertisementAdvertisementMORE: Emiliano Martinez demands massive Arsenal pay-off as he’s left out of squad vs FulhamMORE: Dani Ceballos squares up to Arsenal teammate Eddie Nketiah during heated pre-match warm upFollow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.For more stories like this, check our sport page.

So hopefully more of that to come from Arsenal’s perspective.’He later added: ‘They’ve got two new centre-backs who have come in, Gabriel who played today and looked very, very good, very solid – has all the attributes you want to see in a centre-back.‘And they’ve got William Saliba to come in, another young centre-half. And that’s what they’ve been searching for, players who can bring that consistency. Gabriel for me today he got Man of the Match, and deservedly so.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

But once he got into the game we saw the quality that he has.’ Metro Sport ReporterSaturday 12 Sep 2020 2:34 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link1.3kShares Advertisementlast_img read more
