Arsenal handed injury scare

Ahead of taking on the current Premier League title holders, Arsenal have been handed an injury scare.

It comes as centre-back Gabriel has withdrawn from the Brazil squad for their upcoming friendly fixtures.

Confirmation from the Brazilian FA came on Monday afternoon, with the Brazil manager naming Juventus centre-back Bremer as his replacement for friendlies this month against England and Spain.

“I had already communicated previously that we will work with a slightly more extensive list”, Dorival Junior explained. A pre-call — we can put it that way — and again, today, we had another casualty.

“Unfortunately, Gabriel Magalhães is uncalled. In his place, we are calling Bremer, from Juventus.”

Gabriel has been crucial in Arsenal keeping the best defence in the Premier League this campaign and losing him for the Man City tie would be a major blow for the north Londoners.
