Arsenal players "reminded of their responsibilities" after Hippy Crack incident

Stars including Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Matteo Guendouzi feature in the footage, which appears to come from nightclub CCTV footage and was published by The Sun.

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.

The incident occurred in a London nightclub before the start of the season.

"For context, "Hippy Crack" is what is known as Nitrous Oxide or better known as 'Laughing Gas".

The Gunners are unbeaten in 20 matches in all competitions and take on Huddersfield in the Premier League on Saturday.

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.

Players from other clubs, such as Raheem Sterling, Kyle Walker, Jack Grealish and Nathaniel Clyne, have all been accused of inhaling "hippy crack" in the last few years, so it's not an uncommon practice amongst footballers.

Arsenal lost their first two matches of the season against City and Chelsea but have not been beaten since and are now on a run of 20 games without suffering a defeat.
