Arsenal injury news: Gabriel sent off in Tottenham clash to deepen defensive crisis

A

Rsenal’s injury problems worsened during Thursday night’s miserable trip to Tottenham.

With Ben White just fit enough to bench for a North London derby in which Mikel Arteta’s side were torn apart, Rob Holding’s first red card only made life more difficult.

Already short of defenders with Kieran Tierney ruled out for the rest of the season, Gabriel then suffered the injury in the 74th minute and was replaced by Nuno Tavares.

The outfit will be suspended for Monday’s trip to Newcastle, a game Arsenal simply must win.

Should Spurs beat relegation-threatened Burnley on Sunday, they will be a point ahead of the Gunners before kick-off even at St James’ Park.

A brace from Harry Kane in the first half sent Arsenal faltering before the break, with Heung-min Son making matters worse seconds after the restart by adding a third.

Arteta’s side then wrap up what looks like a nervy end to the season with a visit from Everton.
