The Incredible Moment Arsenal's Gabriel Magalhaes Ran On His Knees And Tackled Sergio Aguero
Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhães stopped Sergio Aguero via some very unconventional means on Saturday night.
The Argentine ace was making his return after a lengthy injury lay-off and played just over an hour in the 1-0 win at the Etihad Stadium.
He was rather quiet and that was largely because of the performance of Gabriel, signed from Lille in the summer for a reported £27 million fee.
The Brazilian was extremely impressive defensively and not afraid to try a unique approach against Aguero. In the early stages of the game, Gabriel was seen running on his knees as he looked to thwart City's record goalscorer.
Aguero was fed wide by Bernardo Silva and after looking like he had got past the centre-back, Gabriel recovered superbly with some matrix style-defending. He then made the block and conceded a corner as Aguero tried to pick out a teammate.

Gunners fans are very much enjoying the displays he's been churning out so far, with plenty of big statements being thrown around regarding how good he is.
Arsenal have been crying out for a top-quality centre-back for a while now and they might just have found him in Gabriel.
