Gabriel says the consistent quality of Premier League teams was a primary reason for him joining Arsenal.
The Brazil defender has delivered a series of assured performances since arriving in London, and the Gunners have won each of the first six matches in which he has featured.
Gabriel is impressed with England's top-flight and he feels Arsenal are on the right track.
"If you look at our individual qualities we make a great team. That’s why we are playing well especially now in the last weeks of the season"
“Every player knows his quality, we have top-quality training facilities and an excellent team,” the defender told Arsenal.com. “If you look at our individual qualities we make a great team. That’s why we are playing well especially now in the last weeks of the season.
“[The strength of the league is] one of the reasons why I wanted to play here. It’s a tight competition with no weak teams. Clubs at the bottom of the table compete at the same level with the leaders.
“The Premier League is a tough competition. If you lose a game, the team below you in the table will get closer. We are aware of the difficulties, but we are on the right path.”
