Gabriel Paulista is looking forward to Arsenal's FA Cup clash with Burnley on Saturday afternoon

Gabriel Paulista has taken to social media to issue a rallying cry ahead of Arsenal’s FA Cup clash with Burnley on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners head into the game looking to return to winning ways after the disappointment of their 1-0 loss to Chelsea in the Premier League last weekend.

Gabriel was a first-half substitute during that game following Per Mertesacker’s red card for bringing down Diego Costa.

The Brazilian defender is likely to start Saturday’s cup clash against Burnley as Mertesacker serves his one-game ban.

And the centre-half is clearly looking forward to the game, if his latest post on social media is anything to go by.

Gabriel shared the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Come on Gunners #gabrielisagunner #FAcup”

Gabriel joined Arsenal in the January transfer window in 2015 from Villarreal.
