Olivier Giroud and Mathieu Debuchy looked in good spirits as they spent a French Christmas together ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.

Arsene Wenger’s first-team squad took part in a light training session early on Friday morning before returning to their families for Christmas lunch.

Both Giroud and Debuchy will be hoping to feature when Arsenal take on Southampton at St Mary’s on Boxing Day.

And the France internationals looked to be in a festive mood as they snapped a selfie with an inflatable Santa Claus.

Debuchy shared the picture above on his personal Twitter account on Friday evening and wrote: “Merry Christmas @_OlivierGiroud_”
