Gabriel is set to be recalled to the Arsenal team for their Saturday evening Premier League clash against Everton, Football Insider sources understand.

The Brazilian, who has missed the last two matches through illness, is expected to play at Emirates Stadium instead of Per Mertesacker.

Gabriel will line up at centre-back alongside first-choice Laurent Koscielny.

This comes after Koscielny and Mertesacker laid the foundations for Arsenal’s 2-0 midweek Champions League win over Bayern Munich with impressive displays at the back.

However, Gabriel has showed great promise at centre-back since his January move from Villarreal and has developed even further this season.
