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

Unai Emery will speak today to a group of Arsenal's senior players who are alleged to have inhaled nitrous oxide at a pre-season party.

In CCTV footage obtained by the Sun, the players, at a party in London in August, appear to be inhaling the substance from balloons.

The players will be spoken to about this and reminded of their responsibilities as representatives of the club.

In the same year, Jack Grealish was warned by the then Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood after pictures emerged of him appearing to inhale the gas, and Saido Berahino was reprimanded by West Brom for a similar incident in 2014.

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas or "hippy crack", is freely available, but it is technically illegal to sell it for recreational purposes.

Arsenal, coming from a 4-2 win over Tottenham in the North London derby last weekend got off to a good start with defender Shkodran Mustafi's header in the 26th minute that was misjudged by David De Gea after Ander Herrera failed to come up with a proper clearance.

Nitrous oxide, which is used legitimately in medicine, dentistry and catering, is legal, although it is illegal to supply or import it for personal use.

"Arsenal negotiated another hard task at Old Trafford on Wednesday and Unai Emery's reign continues to gather momentum", he told the Mail.

The Gunners lost their first two matches of the 2018-19 Premier League campaign, but are unbeaten since.
