Arsenal go into Thursday’s game with AC Milan in the last sixteen of the Europa League on the back of four straight defeats in all competitions.
The pressure on Arsene Wenger has never been greater and he has not been able to inspire his two marquee January signings, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, to make the difference.
Following the departure of Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United, the arrival of the duo, who are reunited after they played together at Borussia Dortmund, was meant to soften the blow.
After a sizzling start in a 5-1 demolition of Everton, both their Gunners careers have tailed off in recent weeks and they are struggling to justify their status as the highest earners at the club.
Ahead of the clash in the San Siro, the underperforming duo appeared in a video alongside younger team-mates Hector Bellerin and Alex Iwobi, who tried to teach them slang.

It was a little feature that may have gone down well if the team was doing well on the pitch but given Arsenal’s current form, their fans have not taken kindly to the video.
We’ve taken a closer look at some of the best reaction…
Should teach them words like "defending", "press" and "marking"

literally the last thing they should currently be doing is to participate in cringe videos like this
