Arsenal players past and present have come together to launch ArsenalDirect’s Christmas video this year.
Under-23s coach Freddie Ljungberg and former left-back Nigel Winterburn join forces to unravel the lights for the tree, before Academy Manager Per Mertesacker provides the finishing touches by dropping a star on top.
FA Cup winning forward Charlie George partakes in some last-minute present wrapping, whilst Arsenal Women’s duo Lisa Evans and Emma Mitchell go head to head in an extremely competitive game of miniature table football.
Lucas Torreira unwraps his big Christmas gift – a framed pictured of Alexandre Lacazette! – much to the French forward’s delight, and Bernd Leno swaps his goalkeeper gloves for kitchen mittens.
Laurent Koscielny then leads the players in some good old-fashioned cracker pulling, before youngsters Emile Smith-Rowe, Joe Willock and Eddie Nketiah are left to clean up the mess from an Arsenal Christmas.
