Christmas is cancelled! Arsenal players decide not to party

Date Posted,December 22, 2016

Arsenal players cancelled their own Christmas party.

They were due to go out in fancy dress for a night on the town but decided it was a bad idea on the back of the defeat at Manchester City on Sunday.

Senior players, like Petr Cech and captain Laurent Koscielny, were concerned about the message it would send if they were pictured partying in comedy costumes.

Some still went out for a drink or a meal but they did not want a repeat of last year when they were pictured in fancy dress.

Arsenal’s players had been out the previous week with their WAGs in London after the defeat at Everton at a social gathering organised by the club.

But the second one was the players’ party which they do most years with the blessing of Arsene Wenger.

However, on the back of the defeat at City, they decided to cancel it straight away after falling nine points behind in the title race.

Some players attended a Junior Gunners party on Thursday.

Alexis Sanchez was among the players who partied with 150 lucky young fans, who were picked at random to attend a festive fun-day and celebrate with the club.

Sanchez entertained the group of children at Arsenal’s Training Centre in London Colney, where he posed for selfies and took them all on in a quick game of football.

Other players who took time out of their busy December schedules to meet the fans included Mesut Ozil, Hector Bellerin, Oliver Giroud and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
