Journalist praises Arsenal star after they beat Aston Villa

Arsenal fan and Give Me Sports Academy Manager, Alex Batt, has praised Gabriel Magalhaes after the Brazilian put in another stunning show for the Gunners against Aston Villa.

Since joining the club in 2020, Gabriel has continued to be an influential figure at the Emirates.

The former Lille man is now the club’s first-choice centre-back pairing alongside Ben White.

Both players have a solid understanding and that has helped Arsenal ascend to the top four in Premier League table.

A top-four finish is very close now and Batt believes Gabriel has been a rock in the Arsenal defence.

After he helped the club keep another clean sheet in their 1-0 win against Aston Villa this afternoon, Batt tweeted: “Gabriel is our best centre-back for a long, long, long, long time. Makes everything look easy. Dominates everyone. Absolute baller. Criminally underrated by non-Arsenal fans.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Gabriel has hardly put a foot wrong in this campaign, and the Brazilian is set for big things.

If we finish this season in the Champions League places, he deserves a lot of credit for that.

He has made life easy for the players around him and a language barrier has not been a problem for him despite not being a native speaker.

  1. I made Gabriel Mot M today as he hardly make any mistakes and gobble up everything that cam near He is by far our best CB since Sol Campbell IMO. I never thought Koscielny better than good, not even VERY good and even he was miles clear of the third best since CAMPBELL. All great teams need real top defenders and esp CB.

    We now have two, with SALIBA TO COME BACK SOON AND MAKE THREE.

    And who has organised this ? Why none other than our so called(by some dullards) “rookie” manager.

    1. Saliba not his signing, you just discredited all you said.

      You wanted Wenger out for not wining league yet yiu salute Arteta. Fickle fan.

  2. Physically strong and dominant in the air has that commanding presence for some time niw has look real good with the pairing of Ben White.

    Jon Fox is right he hardly makes mistakes as he reads the game well, tell you what the minute we get an upgrade in the defensive midfield , is going to look even better .

    I still haven’t fully recovered from our reaction at Villa park today
