Gabriel Magalhaes in unseen exchange with Bukayo Saka after Aleksandar Mitrovic goal vs Arsenal – Football.London

Arsenal continued their 100 per cent start to the Premier League season on Saturday as beat Fulham. The Gunners didn’t have it all their own way, though, at the Emirates Stadium with Aleksandar Mitrovic opening the scoring in the second half.

Gabriel Magalhaes was dispossessed by the Fulham striker before he slotted the ball past Aaron Ramsdale. In the aftermath of the goal, a frustrated Gabriel had a heated exchange with his Arsenal team-mate Bukayo Saka.

The Brazilian defender was seemingly telling Saka that he needs to get the ball forward quicker. Saka passed the ball across goal to find Gabriel, who was then under pressure by the Serbian.

Fortunately for Arsenal, Martin Odegaard found the leveller not too long after and then, rather ironically, Gabriel scored what turned out to be the match-winning goal. Saka was quick to praise the defender after the game.

“He’s a guy with a big character,” Saka told BBC Match of the Day. “He deserved to get the winner.”

He added: “We had to be patient. Credit to Fulham, they made it difficult for us. In the end we got the result we wanted, so we’re happy. Eddie Nketiah made a real difference for us. I’m happy with his contribution and I’m sure he’ll score a lot of goals for us this season.

“We’re all so hungry to win each game. We’re going to continue like this for the whole season. We know how difficult the Premier League is. We’re just focusing on the next game, the next game and the next game.”
