Gabriel & one more Arsenal star make BBC's Team of the Week after Newcastle thrashing

Arsenal made a statement in the 2023/24 title race by beating Newcastle 4–1 at the Emirates at the weekend.

Gabriel and Martin Odegaard have been included in the BBC's Premier League Team of the Week after dominating the Magpies.

On Gabriel, Garth Crook said: "Arsenal returned from a 1–0 loss at Porto in the Champions League in midweek and battered Newcastle, and Gabriel was a good as anyone in an Arsenal shirt.

"If the Newcastle hierarchy want what Arsenal have then they are going to have to pay for it. It's no coincidence that the top three teams in the league have the best squads in the country."

On Odegaard, he added: "This was Arsenal at their blistering best. If Mikel Arteta was in any doubt about getting a reaction from his players after their last-minute defeat against Porto then he was certainly left in no doubt after their demolition of Newcastle.

"Odegaard was the man, once again, at the heart of this victory for Arsenal and at no stage was he prepared to let Newcastle into the game once they had control of it. The Gunners have been scoring goals almost at will lately and continued in that vein against Newcastle."
