Gabriel reacts on Instagram to Arsenal defeat to Aston Villa

Arsenal central defender Gabriel has taken to Instagram to express his disappointment at his side’s defeat to Aston Villa at the weekend.

The Gunners suffered a 3-0 loss at the hands of Villa at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

Mikel Arteta’s side conceded the opening goal of the match in North London after 25 minutes when Bukayo Saka turned Matt Targett’s cross into his own net.

Villa doubled their advantage in the 72nd minute when summer signing Ollie Watkins headed home Ross Barkley’s volleyed delivery from close range.

The striker made it 3-0 just three minutes later when he finished past Bernd Leno after some brilliant work from Jack Grealish.

Gabriel, who joined Arsenal from Lille in the summer of 2020, started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes, and he is disappointed with the final result.

The 22-year-old Brazilian, though, has made it clear that the defeat will not affect him and his teammates, and that the players will work hard to improve and bounce back.
