FOUR Arsenal stars have become the latest Premier League Covidiots to break government lockdown rules.
Club-record £72million buy Nicolas Pepe was filmed having a kickabout with a dozen pals in North London, with footage shared on WhatsApp.
Fellow Gunners David Luiz and Granit Xhaka were also spotted having a get-together on parkland in Southgate.
And Alexandre Lacazette was snapped standing next to a car valeter cleaning his Audi on his driveway.
Ivory Coast winger Pepe also shared another footie game with pals on Instagram.
Last night an Arsenal spokesman told SE: “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.”
The players’ antics come as the horrific UK coronavirus death toll yesterday hit 18,100.
Pepe, wearing a grey tracksuit and black trainers, casually joined in a game on an astroturf pitch in Colingdale’s Graham Park on April 15.
Police later closed the pitch following complaints.
Luiz and Xhaka’s kick-about occurred on Tuesday on fields near Oakwood Station in Southgate, North London.
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?”
Lacazette’s car wash took place on Monday.
A passer-by who spotted the striker said: “I was shocked to see them so close. Surely getting someone to clean your motor cannot be classed as essential travel.
“Why couldn’t Lacazette have done it himself?”
This latest scandal comes just 24 hours after shamed Spurs’ Covidiots Serge Aurier and Moussa Sissoko issued a grovelling apology after becoming the latest Tottenham stars to break lockdown rules after posting a video of them ignoring social distancing orders.
Spurs boss 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.
Manchester City star Kyle Walker ignored lockdown rules by hosting a sex party with a friend and two call girls in his flat, while Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish crashed his car following a 4am party – just hours after urging fans to stay indoors for the virus lockdown.
