Gabriel looks set to be sidelined for between six and eight weeks after picking up a sprain against Manchester City.
We had all feared the worst when he was in tears on the pitch but it seems as if there is relatively good news with the BBC’s Ornacle tweeting:
Arsenal CB Gabriel out 6/8wks – ankle sprain. Not quite as bad as he 1st feared but #AFC stepping up pursuit of Valencia's Shkodran Mustafi

Gabriel himself had taken to Instagram earlier in the day to confirm that the problem was not as severe as we first thought.
