'King is back': Some Arsenal fans erupt as 'generational' star returns to training ahead of Newcastle clash

Arsenal have been boosted by the return of Gabriel Magalhaes to training, and plenty of fans were delighted to see him back in the fold.

The Brazilian was back with the squad for the first time in several weeks after missing the last three games because of covid-related issues.

And with Arsenal in FA Cup third-round action this evening, Gabriel is in contention to feature against Newcastle and hopefully help the Gunners continue on their winning run.

The £27million man looked sharp at Colney and produced a great bit of skill during a rondo session, nutmegging Thomas Partey on the half-volley, to the delight of their teammates.

Here is what some Arsenal fans were saying on Twitter about Gabriel’s return to the fold:

Gabriel has been one of Arsenal’s best and most consistent players this season, shining during the torrid run of form which saw numerous star players flatter to deceive.

To date, the 23-year-old has made 15 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal, including 12 starts in the Premier League, and earlier this season he won the Arsenal Player of the Month award three times in a row.
