Arsenal to speak to players involved in 'hippy crack' controversy

Alexandre Lacazette, Matteo Guendouzi, Sead Kolasinac, Mesut Ozil and Pierre- Emerick Aubameyang are those featured in the video that has been published by The Sun.

Young French midfielder Guendouzi can be seen passing out after inhaling from a balloon on a sofa.

"Hippy crack" - also known as laughing gas - can severely affect coordination and lead to potentially devastating health issues such as heart attacks or even death.

While it is not illegal to possess the drug, it is illegal to give away or sell.

A number of Gunners stars were in attendance at the "champagne and vodka party" in a VIP area of a West End Nightclub in August prior to the Premier League season getting underway.

Revisions eyed for rushed Australia encryption law
One alternative is to seize a suspect's phone, and then authorities could try to persuade the person to turn over their passcode. Mr Porter also said police and national security agencies will still require a warrant to access the encrypted messages .

After seeing the video, an Arsenal spokesperson told BBC Sport that 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.

Arsenal, coming from a 4-2 win over Tottenham in the North London derby last weekend got off to a good start with defender Shkodran Mustafi's header in the 26th minute that was misjudged by David De Gea after Ander Herrera failed to come up with a proper clearance.

Arsenal endured a challenging start to the season, and manager Unai Emery found himself under a huge amount of pressure.

The Gunners are now fifth in the Premier League table.
