Gabriel Taunts Aubameyang After Arsenal’s Dominant Win Vs Chelsea
Brazil defender Gabriel Magalhaes made a cheeky dig at Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang following Arsenal’s 1-0 away victory against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.
Arsenal secured the three points at Stamford Bridge thanks to Gabriel’s second-half winner from Bukayo Saka’s corner.
It was a huge win for Mikel Arteta’s side, as they have returned to the top of the Premier League table – just 24 hours after Manchester City displaced them.
All of the talk before the game was about Aubameyang’s first meeting against Arsenal since he was released in February.
The Gabon international fanned the flames ahead of the clash by saying, “Arsenal, it’s nothing personal… I’m back, I’m Blue, I’m ready – let’s go”.
And it seems Aubameyang’s message was noticed by his former team-mates. Within an hour of Arsenal’s win, Gabriel took to Twitter to write, “NOTHING PERSONAL .. LONDON IS RED.”
Many Arsenal fans suspected Aubameyang’s pre-match comments would give their team motivation to win Sunday afternoon’s game. That famously happened last season when Ivan Toney tweeted, “Nice kick about with the boys” after Brentford dismantled Arsenal.
Arteta then used Toney’s comments to motivate his players ahead of the return game at the Emirates, which the Gunners won.
They then inflicted another defeat on Brentford in September, leaving Gabriel to jokingly tweet, “Nice kick about with the boys.”
Arsenal will back in action in midweek when they host Brighton in the Carabao Cup and on Saturday travel to Molineaux to face Wolverhampton Wanderers.
