Arsenal to talk to players seen apparently inhaling nitrous oxide

Arsenal have released a statement confirming that they will issue warnings to some of their star players after a video emerged showing them allegedly inhaling nitrous oxide.

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.

The incident took place in August, just before the start of the season, when a number of the London club's squad members enjoyed a night out at Tape Club.

An Arsenal spokesman said that the players will be "reminded of their responsibilities as representatives of the club".

3 astronauts blast off to International Space Station
The Soyuz rocket's journey to the International Space Station took approximately six hours, and it docked at 12:40 p.m. Cosmonaut Kononenko said on Sunday, Dec. 2, during a press conference, that he "absolutely" trusts the flight plan.

The Sun reported that boxes of "laughing gas" canisters were brought to the players' area of the club and that footage showed Özil, Aubameyang, Guendouzi and Lacazette inhaling the gas.

Other players such as Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker have been seen using the gas in the past, with the City fullback apologising for using the substance back in 2013.

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.

Arsenal, under new manager Unai Emery, are now fifth in the Premier League table and are unbeaten in 20 consecutive matches in all competitions.
