Arsenal says they will remind their players of their "responsibilities" after several were caught inhaling nitrous oxide.

The club has now responded to the shocking footage, with a spokesperson telling the BBC that the players would be "spoken to and reminded of their responsibilities".

Other well-known Premier League players have previously caused outrage after being filmed apparently inhaling the gas, including England internationals Kyle Walker and Raheem Sterling.

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.

Bond market flashes yield curve warning
Should this harbinger of bad news hold, the US economy is nearly certainly looking at a slowdown if not an outright recession. It is not a sure indicator, however, with an inversion in 1966 and a very flat curve in 1998 failing to lead to recessions.

Arsenal duo Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Shkodran Mustafi are also seen in the video, although it is unclear whether the pair took part in inhaling the balloon alongside their teammates.

It is not illegal to possess nitrous oxide, but it is against British law to sell or give the drug to anybody else.

The North London club sit in fifth in the Premier League table, only behind fourth-placed Chelsea on goal difference.

Arsenal started the campaign with consecutive defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea but have embarked on a brilliant 20-game unbeaten run under new boss Unai Emery.
