Lucas Perez was spending time with his two best friends ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Manchester United this weekend.

The Arsenal striker, who is currently nursing an ankle injury picked up in the League Cup against Reading, looked to be in high spirits as he posed for a picture with his two dogs outside his home.

Perez posted the picture above onto his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Always with me. My faithful friends nelius and vento.”

Perez is yet to earn a regular spot in the Arsenal team since arriving at The Emirates late in the summer transfer window.

Arsenal head into their clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford looking to return to winning ways after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Tottenham Hotspur before the international break.
