Gabriel sidelined by hamstring injury

The Brazilian defender, who made the switch to the Emirates Stadium from Villarreal in the last transfer window, hobbled off shortly before half-time of Wednesday's 2-1 Premier League victory at QPR.

As well as being absent for Monday's FA Cup quarter-final tie against Manchester United, Gabriel could also miss Premier League matches against West Ham, Newcastle United and Liverpool as well as the UEFA Champions League last 16 second leg tie at Monaco.
