Kieran Gibbs led his team-mates in a chant about players from Manchester City and Liverpool during Arsenal's FA Cup celebrations.

Video footage taken the night after the Gunners' 4-0 win over Aston Villa at Wembley shows the left-back egging on his willing team-mates in a few verses of the Kolo/Yaya Toure chant.

The choice of song for the post-final celebrations at a London nightclub might be considered somewhat strange considering neither player plays for Arsenal. Although Kolo Toure did until 2009.

Wearing a rimmed hat, Gibbs is filmed with a microphone dancing in front of his team-mates while captain Mikel Arteta takes a leading role alongside him.

The video comes just days after the Liverpool squad (the team Kolo now plays for) were filmed chanting the song during their post-season tour of the Middle East.

In that video, captain Steven Gerrard is the one leading the way, bopping his way around a hotel in Dubai.

 

Arsenal took part in a parade through the streets of Highbury & Islington the morning after the footage was filmed, at which some of the players looked worse for wear.

During the speeches, it was Jack Wilshere's turn to take the microphone, with the Arsenal midfielder leading offensive chants about rivals Tottenham.
