HIP HIP HOORAY

HIPPY CRACK scandal will make the Arsenal stars stronger – that is according former Stoke and Portsmouth striker Dave Kitson.

He added that the Gunners’ stars will be sheepish in the dressing room after SunSport exclusively revealed a video showing them taking the legal high at a private party.

‘QUITE INNOCENT’

ARSENAL legend Perry Groves has defended the Arsenal stars after footage went viral of them inhaling hippy crack.

The ex-Gunner told that it is not as bad as a 15-pint bender.

The Arsenal defender ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament during the draw and will now be on the sidelines for six to nine months.

CRACK THE WHIP

GUNNERS’ stars are expected to be given a dressing down by Unai Emery and club bosses following they too hippy crack in August.

Footage went viral of Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and others taking the legal high at a vodka and champagne party.

INJURY BLOW

ARSENAL WOMEN’S star Jordan Nobbs will miss the the 2019 World Cup in France after suffering an ACL injury.

The Lionesses ace was expected to be one of England’s key players as Phil Neville’s side look to improve on 2015’s third place.

SPURRED ON

TOTTENHAM striker Harry Kane believes the stunning form of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is pushing him on to win his third Premier League Golden Boot.

The 25-year-old has banged in nine goals in the top-flight this season – just one strike behind the Arsenal ace – with the duo occupying the top two spots.

HIPPY CRACK SHOCK

ARSENAL footballers passed out inhaling “hippy crack” from balloons at a wild champagne and vodka party.

Gooners stars Alexandre Lacazette, 27, Matteo Guendouzi, 19, Mesut Özil, 30, and Pierre- Emerick Aubameyang, 29, were at the heart of the danger binge on nitrous oxide — which was caught on film.

THIS IS A HOLD UP

ROB HOLDING is set to miss the rest of the season with a cruciate ligament injury sustained during the Gunners’ 2-2 draw against Manchester United

The defender was stretchered off at Old Trafford yesterday with what boss Unai Emery called a “big” injury.

YOU GOT ME OUT OF SIN BIN

SEAD KOLASINAC has thanked his Arsenal teammates after his howler saw Manchester United rescue a point at Old Trafford last night.

The left-back was caught out minutes after the Gunners had gone 2-1 up at the Theatre of Dreams, allowing Jesse Lingard to equalise.

HAIR TODAY, GUNN TOMORROW

ARSENAL boss Unai Emery has called on Matteo Guendouzi to cut his hair after his clash with Marouane Fellaini last night.

The French midfielder, 19, had his long, curly locks yanked by formerly big-haired Fellaini during the Gunners’ 2-2 draw with Manchester United.

OUS THE MAN

ARSENAL may be favourites to sign Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele – because their head of recruitment is a big fan.

Rumours continue to swirl that the 21-year-old French World Cup winner could be heading out of the Nou Camp.

OZ-ILL

MESUT OZIL has been ruled out of Arsenal’s match at home to Huddersfield through injury.

The Gunners star has missed the last three Premier League games having been dropped against Bournemouth and then sitting out matches against Spurs and Man Utd with a back spasm.

WEN WILL HE RETURN?

ARSENE WENGER is set to be the next Bayern Munich manager, believes Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit.

The Frenchman is convinced his former boss will return to football in the next month and believes that he will end up in Germany, rather than at PSG or Real Madrid.

CEN MAIL

ARSENAL are prepared to offer £50m for Roma wonderkid Cengiz Under after having a £30m bid turned down.

But the Gunners face fierce competition for his signature from North London rivals Tottenham.

MORE AAR TIME

UNAI EMERY has released a positive update on Aaron Ramsey’s injury, saying the midfielder will return more quickly than first thought.

The Welshman appeared to jar his ankle at Old Trafford, but his manager says he just picked up a ‘small knock’.
