There was a crucial moment deep into injury time at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

With Arsenal leading Everton 2-1, powerful centre-forward Romelu Lukaku burst into the box with the hope of rifling a left-foot bullet past Petr Cech for 2-2.

But before the big Belgium could get his shot away, Arsenal centre-half Gabriel Paulista slid in with a clean, monster tackle, and he cleared the danger from the Gunners box.

After doing his job with splendid form, Gabriel popped up, flexed his arm, and celebrated his tackle as if he’d scored a goal. Fair dos!

The moment wasn’t lost on Arsenal fans watching the game on TV, and comments immediately flooded into Twitter to make ‘Gabriel’ a trending topic.

Arsenal are now top of the league, at least until Man United host Man City in the derby at Old Trafford on Sunday.
