The jury is out! The gods have struck again and this time, they have taken Gabriel.
The Arsenal defender got injured two minutes from time against Manchester City and it looked so serious at that point as he was in tears.
BBC’s David Ornstein has however come out to say he will be out for 6 – 8 weeks which is somehow a good news considering fans are expecting him to be out for longer.
Gabriel himself gave a positive update on his damaged ankle, claiming the injury “is not a big problem”.
Arsenal CB Gabriel out 6/8wks – ankle sprain. Not quite as bad as he 1st feared but #AFC stepping up pursuit of Valencia’s Shkodran Mustafi

Another good news ‘The Ornacle’ gave was that we are stepping up our chase for Valencia’s Mustafi. Whether we can bring him in before Liverpool is another issue.
