Gabriel Paulista has issued an Arsenal rallying cry ahead of the visit of Stoke City at The Emirates on Saturday.

The Gunners are still searching for their first home Premier League win of the season after a 2-0 defeat by West Ham United and goalless draw with Liverpool last month.

Gabriel has enjoyed a run in the Arsenal first-team over the past number of games as the north London side secured back-to-back clean sheets against Liverpool and Newcastle United.

And the Brazil international took to his Instagram page to declare that he is ready to help the Gunners secure victory over the Potters at Emirates Stadium.

Gabriel wrote on the photo-sharing app: “Its always good to be back, and I am ready to help the team, come on @arsenal”

Gabriel moved to Arsenal in an £11.5m deal from La Liga side Villarreal in January.

The Brazil defender has made just 10 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners.

The Arsenal centre-half helped the north London side win the FA Cup last season.
