Gabriel Magalhaes worry revealed for Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta as Gunners eye top four

“Arsenal’s defence still bothers me (is Gabriel the right standard?) but it is evident they are moving in the right direction,” Richards said.

“They are a long way from the peaks that Wenger brought but the picture is improving.”

And he said Arsenal were no longer a joke under Arteta, saying: “Most importantly, nobody is laughing at them any more.”

Gabriel played in Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday, and was praised by Gunners legend Ian Wright after the game, having put in a disciplined display.

Arsenal have in fact not conceded more than one goal in a game when the Brazilian has been playing.
