Arsenal and Tottenham players ignore lockdown rules after two videos were published on various social media platforms this week.
Gunners players David Luiz, Granit Xhaka, Nicolas Pepe and Alexandre Lacazette along with Spurs duo Serge Aurier and Moussa Sissoko are latest Premier League Covidiots.
Pepe was filmed having a kickabout with some friends in North London, with footage shared on WhatsApp.
He joined in a game on an astroturf pitch in Colingdale’s Graham Park last week, before police later closed the pitch following complaints.
Lacazette got close to a valeter who he asked to clean his car despite the lockdown.
A passer-by who spotted him said: “I was shocked to see them so close. Surely getting someone to clean your motor cannot be classed as essential travel.
Luiz and Xhaka were also spotted having a get-together on parkland in Southgate.
A dog-walker said: “They were having a great time, not a care in the world. Why is it one rule for them and another for the rest of us?”
One Arsenal spokesman told the media: “Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We’ll be speaking to our players.
“We were concerned so we have spoken to Nicolas who shares a house with a number of relatives who were involved in this game.
“We have reminded him of the importance of everyone following the guidelines.”
It comes just 24 hours after Tottenham’s Aurier and Sissoko’s issued an apology for posting a video of them ignoring social distancing orders.

Jose Mourinho was also accused by MPs of “putting lives at risk” after he took Tanguy Ndombele for training in a park.
The same day Spurs defenders Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon were also spotted running together in another park session.
Man City’s Kyle Walker ignored lockdown rules by hosting a sex party with a friend and two call girls in his flat.
Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish crashed his car following a 4am party – just hours after urging fans to stay indoors for the virus lockdown.
Fans reacted to seeing the Arsenal and Tottenham players ignore lockdown rules…
Lacazette seems a bit harsh.

Xhaka, laca, Pepe and luiz, sell the lot of them if they are gonna break the lockdown rules and make the club look as bad as the scum down the road

What’s confusing is Luiz literally posted on social media and did an interview with Wrighty saying everyone should follow the rules.

The way Serge Aurier marks his man during games you’d think he’d been social distancing for a few years now

Spurs have developed quite a track record during #COVID19 lockdown. It’s no wonder they don’t have the character or discipline to win a trophy!

Arrogance of people on too much money who think consequences of life “won’t happen to me”. Reflects the on field performances of people who just don’t care too .
