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

Emirates Stadium 3

Arsenal and Crystal Palace went head-to-head this weekend.

Arsenal dropped two precious points this weekend as they could only draw 1-1 with Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium.

Alexis Sanchez put the Gunners ahead as he maintained his great recent form but a late Yannick Bolasie strike ensured the Eagles headed back to Selhurst Park with a share of the spoils.

The result also means that Arsenal are only four points ahead of Manchester United in the race for a Champions League qualifying spot and they will be wary of missing out on that given their regular presence in the competition under manager Arsene Wenger.

One player they had to thank for things not being even worse was centre-back Gabriel Paulista.

The Brazilian’s last-ditch tackle prevented Wilfried Zaha from having a clear shot on goal in the dying moments and while he has come in for plenty of criticism this season, on this occasion the defender did well.

That said, fans questioned his role in the build-up to Palace's goal and on this evidence he is still some way from proving the doubters wrong.
