Arsenal to remind players of their responsibilites after 'laughing gas' incident

And the north London club has vowed to question the quarter over the incident.

CCTV footage obtained by The Sun showed numerous club's senior players inhaling balloons of the gas (also known as "hippy crack") during a party which took place ahead of the start of the season.

A number of players, including Mesut Özil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Mattéo Guendouzi, appear to inhale nitrous oxide - also referred to as laughing gas or hippy crack - in footage published by the Sun.

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

Liverpool's Joe Gomez has fractured lower leg, will be out six weeks
Clyney is out for two weeks or so. "Joe, Oxlade, Rhian Brewster and Dom Solanke (are all unavailable), but Dom is close". He helped us a lot, especially because we could make these changes with Trent and Joe. "I have a plan - surprisingly".

Other well-known Premier League players have previously caused outrage after being filmed apparently inhaling the gas, including England internationals Kyle Walker and Raheem Sterling.

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.

Arsenal started the campaign with consecutive defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea but have embarked on a brilliant 20-game unbeaten run under new boss Unai Emery. It is not illegal to possess nitrous oxide but it is illegal to supply it under the 2016 Psychoactive Substances Act.

The Gunners are now on an unbeaten run of 20 straight matches following their 2-2 draw with Manchester United midweek.
