Arsenal defender Gabriel confirmed he found his missing tooth, which was lost after the Gunners' 2-0 win over Brighton on Sunday afternoon.

The Brazilian centre-back suffered this unusual accident as Mikel Arteta's men celebrated on the pitch with the departing David Luiz, who said his goodbyes to teammates after the full-time whistle.

A search of the Emirates pitch then followed, involving club staff and players.

Gabriel later shared a photo on his Instagram story, confirming that the tooth had been found.

"Don't worry my friends, I've found my tooth", the defender said.

Victory for the Gunners on yesterday afternoon confirmed an eighth-placed finish for the north London side.

It has been a disappointing campaign for Arsenal, who failed to qualify for Europe for the first time in 25 years.

Tottenham Hotspur clinched the final European spot with a 4-2 win at Leicester City and will now enter into the UEFA Conference League.

Speaking after his side's final match of the season, Arteta recognised that the Gunners had fallen short of expectations as he vowed to come back stronger next year.

"Disappointed because we are not in Europe," the Arsenal boss said when delivering his verdict on the 2020/21 campaign.

"We made progress last year in terms of points. Sixty-one points last year would have taken us to fifth but it shows the way the league is developing and the level we need to get to."

Arteta added: "It wasn't in our hands. We tried to do our best and won the last five games but it wasn't enough.

"This club deserves to be delivered trophies and the Champions League, but we haven't managed to do that under very challenging circumstances.

"We have tried to stick together and do our best but it's not been enough and we have to be very critical of ourselves, and myself, and then next season prepare in the best possible way."
