Arsenal fans are excited about Gabriel’s imminent return to the side after his latest tweet.

Gabriel posted ‘I’m back’ on Twitter after the club’s official website provided an update on his recovery.

And Gunners fans were clearly buzzing about the prospect of having the summer signing back in the side.

The update read: “Gabriel previously tested positive for COVID-19. He is feeling well and is showing no signs of illness.”

“Only on the successful completion of the necessary protocols and medical checks in the coming days will Gabriel be able to return to full training with the squad.”

Arsenal have enjoyed a strong run of form in Gabriel’s absence, winning three matches in a row over Christmas.

But he has been one of the club’s best players this season, shining even when results weren’t going Arteta’s way.

Arteta has a decision to make over which of Pablo Mari or Rob Holding would drop out.

He also has to decide how many changes to make for the FA Cup tie against Newcastle.

Arsenal are the holders of the trophy but it was a hectic festive period and players likely need rest.

Here’s how some Gunners fans reacted to Gabriel’s message.
