Video: Arsenal Stars Coquelin, Mertesacker and Gabriel Take on the Pie Face Challenge

It’s the time of year where parents all across the globe are frantically dashing from store to store trying to buy the latest must-have presents for their children.

And thanks to some of Arsenal’s first-team stars, one particular toy is set to rocket to the top of kids’ Christmas lists everywhere.

The players in question are defender Per Mertesacker, midfielder Francis Coquelin and centre-back Gabriel, who all took part in a game of the Pie Face Challenge – which seems to be sweeping the nation – for the club’s YouTube channel.

The game is a bit like Buckaroo, except you run the risk of getting splattered by a face full of cream.

The Gunners managed to avoid a custard pie in the face last week in the Champions League, but one particular German World Cup winner’s luck run out pretty quickly.

You can check out the hilarious clip in its entirety below…
