Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Gabriel's performance against Stoke

Arsenal defeated Stoke City 2-0 this weekend but what did Gunners fans make of Gabriel Paulista's contribution?

Arsenal continued their impressive recent run with a 2-0 victory at home to Stoke City on Saturday.

The Gunners won courtesy of goals from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud but their back-line was just as important with centre-backs Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel Paulista impressing once more.

The latter has been brilliant since his arrival from Villarreal back in January and after his latest showing it is now clearer than ever that he should play ahead of German international Per Mertesacker.

Gabriel has played every second of Arsenal’s last three league games and the Gunners have not conceded a goal in that time, winning against Stoke and Newcastle and drawing with Liverpool.

At just 24, the future looks very bright for Gabriel and he is part of an Arsenal defence that along with the likes of Hector Bellerin should grow together for years to come.

After Gabriel’s latest appearance we took to Twitter to see what Arsenal fans thought of his contribution and you can read a selection of what we found below:
