  • Arsenal players celebrate a goal during their Uefa Europa League Group E match against Vorskla FC at the Olympiyski Stadium in Kiev

Arsenal release a statement revealing that they will "remind players of their responsibilities" after several of them were videoed appearing to inhale laughing gas.

The party appears to have taken place just days before the start of the Premier League season in August.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Shkodran Mustafi have also been identified in the video, but neither were seen inhaling the gas, with Mkhitaryan actively refusing to be given a balloon.

After seeing the video, an Arsenal spokesperson told BBC Sport that players would be "spoken to and reminded of their responsibilities".


The footage is the latest in a series of incidents of top players being linked with nitrous oxide, with Raheem Sterling being warned by Liverpool after footage emerged of him using the substance in 2015.

Nitrous oxide slows down the brain and the body's responses, giving users a feeling of euphoria and can cause hallucinations, but can also lead to headaches, dizziness and paranoia.

The North London club sit in fifth in the Premier League table, only behind fourth-placed Chelsea on goal difference.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's arrival in January appeared to jeopardise his Arsenal career before it had even truly begun, but the pair have dovetailed superbly in Unai Emery's new-look side.
