Arsenal recorded another injury to a player in central defence in their 3-2 win over Manchester City in Gothemburg, Norway on Sunday. It was Gabriel Paulista who twisted his ankle.

Gabriel was helped off the field before leaving the stadium on crutches and in a protective boot. He is surely going to miss the Gunners' opening Premier League fixture against Liverpool this weekend.

Arsenal coach, Arsene Wenger has reacted to the disaster that has befallen his side just about a week to the start of the season. Below is what he had to say:

“We have not even made a diagnosis in the medical room with our doctors or physios yet. I can’t tell you more. He’s in pain. Let’s hope the pain is not a sign of bad news. The only thing we have to know now is how big the damage is with his ligament.

“I’ve never seen an intelligent accident, they always look stupid. We have to take that. He played the ball 100 per cent and I think he rolled his ankle, but I don’t know how it happened. It’s part of our game.

“Maybe he was a bit tired, I don’t know. Was his coordination a bit weaker, I don’t know. Was he locked in the grass with his studs. I have to speak to him. He’s just come out of a medical room and he’s not in a better state because he couldn’t even talk on the pitch.”
