Gabriel Paulista looked to be in good spirits as he posed for a picture with a lucky fan on Saturday morning at Arsenal’s London Colney training ground.

The Brazilian defender reported for training with the rest of his Gunners team-mates on Saturday as Arsene Wenger’s men complete their final preparations for Sunday’s crunch Premier League trip to Stoke City.

And Gabriel took the time to personally meet one of his fans, who was the winner of a signed shirt from the defender through a competition on Instagram.

Gabriel shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account on Saturday and wrote: “Great to meet @robynhobsonxx the winner of my @arsenal shirt contest. #GabrielGunner #GPaulista5”

Arsenal head to the Britannia Stadium on Sunday afternoon looking to return to winning ways after they were forced to settle for a draw in Wednesday night’s 3-3 thriller against Liverpool at Anfield.
