Arsenal had yet another brilliant season and despite just falling short of the Premier League title, the squad will certainly be proud of their efforts.

Throughout the campaign, all players from the Gunners squad played their own individual part in the title efforts and they all deserve the plaudits.

However, in a season where all contributed, there were five players who performed at a level beyond others.

5. Gabriel Magalhaes

Gabriel's future at Arsenal was thrown into doubt at the start of the season when he missed the team's first three Premier League fixtures and was linked to the Saudi Pro League. However, he soon returned to the starting lineup and put in his best from there.

The Brazil international was arguably the Gunners' best defender this season due to William Saliba's proneness to mistakes and sloppiness at times throughout the year. Despite this, he has often found himself overshadowed and not given enough praise due to Saliba's near-constant brilliance.

Gabriel certainly deserves to be recognised for his defensive contributions this season and in my opinion should be held in a higher regard than Saliba. He helped his side keep 17 clean sheets in the league and 22 in all competitions.

As always, the Brazilian also contributed in attack, scoring four goals and was a big reason for Arsenal's set-piece dominance this season.

Regardless of the lack of praise he has received, Gabriel was certainly both one of Arsenal's and the Premier League's best defenders and players throughout the 2023/24 season.
