Video: Arsenal’s Oxlade-Chamberlain, Arteta & Bellerin Reveal Their Superstitions

It’s quite common for professional athletes to be superstitious – especially when it comes to footballers.

Some of Arsenal’s first-team stars have today been revealing their own personal superstitions and how they try to conquer them.

The video includes short interviews with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Hector Bellerin and Mikel Arteta, as they discuss their strange habits and pre-match rituals.

And by the sounds of it, they pretty much seem to be taking over the Ox’s life before he sets foot on the pitch.

The England winger explains how he never walks over an odd number of drains in the street and that he must perform a bizarre hopping routine before taking to the field.

Some of the Emirates stars’ other quirks include what they eat and how they put their kits on before a match.

You can check it out in the video below.

Arsene Wenger will be hoping his side’s superstitions and pre-match rituals pay off tomorrow when they return to Premier League action against Watford.

The Gunners will be hoping to take all three points as they try to keep the pressure on league leaders Manchester City.
