Photo: Gabriel Paulista confirms Arsenal return for Bournemouth clash

Gabriel Paulista appears to be in line to make a return to Arsenal's starting line-up for Monday's clash with Bournemouth

Gabriel Paulista appears to have confirmed that he is set to start Arsenal’s clash with Bournemouth in the Premier League at Emirates Stadium on Monday night.

Arsene Wenger is thought to be set to ring the changes following the humiliation of Arsenal’s 4-0 loss to Southampton at St Mary’s on Boxing Day.

Gabriel has found his first-team opportunities for Arsenal limited in recent weeks, with Wenger opting to stick with the centre-half pairing of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny of late.

However, the Brazilian defender looks set to make his return to the first team against Bournemouth, if his latest post on social media is anything to go by.

Gabriel shared the picture above on Instagram on Monday afternoon and wrote: “It’s always good to be back, and i’m going to give my best always! Come on Gunners #gabrielisagunner #ourhouseourrules #comeongunners #premierleague”
