Lucas Perez seemed to be in high spirits as he rung in the new year in his Arsenal hotel room

Lucas Perez looked to be in good spirits as he celebrated the start of 2017 in his hotel room ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday.

The north London side are currently preparing to take on the Eagles at The Emirates in their first game of the new year as they look to claim victory and keep up the pressure on title favourites Chelsea.

A win for Arsenal would move them up to third place in the Premier League table after Manchester City’s 1-0 defeat by Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday night.

Spanish striker Lucas is currently getting used to life in England following his summer transfer to The Emirates from Deportivo La Coruna in August.

And the forward seemed to be in high spirits as he posed for a picture in his hotel room on New Year’s Eve.
