Gabriel Magalhaes absent from Arsenal training

Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhães did not take part in Arsenal’s training session today ahead of their clash with Aston Villa on Sunday.

Following their 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday, the Gunners’ full squad, including long-term absentee Jurrien Timber, completed training except the Brazilian centre-back. The nature of Gabriel’s absence is unknown, with Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta not commenting directly on his defender’s issue in his press conference today.

“we’ll see if everyone is available.”

Mikel Arteta hinted at some injury concerns within the squad.

Arsenal fans will be sweating on Gabriel’s availability with the games coming thick and fast at this stage of the season. The Gunners are looking to hold on to their place at the top of the Premier League table this weekend before heading to Munich for the return leg of their Champions League on Wednesday.

“We’ve got one more day to prepare the match. We will see tomorrow if everyone is available.”

Gabriel Magalhaes missing for important fixture?

Gabriel has been a mainstay at the centre of the Arsenal defence this season, and his performances alongside William Saliba have been key to them boasting the best defensive record in the English top-flight. Arsenal have conceded just 24 goals in the league this season and their solid defensive record has been a vital component to their recent good form, conceding just one goal in their last five Premier League games.
