Arsenal legend Ian Wright felt that Gabriel was “very shaky” in the chastening 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace on Monday night.The Selhurst Park crowd always create an electric atmosphere, but facing the Eagles in a night match is always a bigger test for the travelling side.Mikel Arteta’s side knew they faced a difficult evening against Patrick Vieira’s Palace, but there were signs of the old flaky and vulnerable Gunners coming to the fore in London on Monday night.The Champions League hopefuls never looked in control and seemingly couldn’t handle the frantic pace and tempo that the Palace players set.Photo by Mike Hewitt/Getty ImagesOne Player Your Club MUST Sell This Summer (2022)With the likes of Connor Gallagher feeding off the home crowd’s support, Arsenal looked rushed every time they were in possession.Instead of taking the sting out of the game and calming everybody else down, Brazilian Gabriel was one player in-particular that Wright felt struggled to deal with Palace’s intensity.Speaking on his ‘Wrighty’s House’ podcast, the former England and Arsenal striker said: “Too many shaky players. I thought Tavares was shaky, I thought Gabriel was very shaky, in the way he was controlling and passing it, everything was awkward. He just looked awkward.“And even when they were passing back to Ramsdale the crowd were right on him, it kind of gave Palace the impetus to say they’re not on it yet.”Photo by Stuart MacFarlane/Arsenal FC via Getty ImagesWith five of Arsenal’s remaining nine Premier League games due to be played away from home, Arteta’s side are going to have to find a way to deal with intimidating atmospheres.With four of those five away games coming against Chelsea, West Ham, Tottenham and Newcastle. Arsenal and the 24-year-old Gabriel in particular are going to have to use Monday night’s disappointment as a steep learning curve with bigger away tests on the horizon.
