Arsenal stars cockney challenge


They play for one of London’s proudest clubs – but when it comes to their Cockney credentials, how do Arsenal’s stars stack up?

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Shkodran Mustafi and Hector Bellerin were put through their paces by Gunners legend Ray Parlour to see if they could become proper Pearly Kings.

Kitted out in Cockney clobber, the trio took on a series of challenges to test their knowledge of Cockney rhyming slang and some of the capital’s culinary delicacies.

Will Shkodran know his ‘Boat Race’ from his ‘Black Lace’? Is Hector ‘Hank Marvin’ enough for a ‘Ruby Murray’? And will Micki dare sample some delicious jellied eels – or even know what they are?

Watch the video above to see how they get on.
