Arsenal seem to be striking a chord on the pitch with three wins in three, including last night’s impressive home win over Manchester City.

The club’s improving form has moved them within two points of league leaders Leicester City and they are quickly becoming the bookmakers’ favourites for the title.

On the evidence of a video published on their official YouTube yesterday, however, Arsenal may soon be topping the charts before they reach the summit of the Premier League table.

The unlikely trio of Alexis Sanchez, Petr Cech and Nacho Monreal have revealed a few hidden talents by forming a band, all in aid of the club’s charity, the Arsenal Foundation.

As it turns out, ‘Christmas SoundCech’ produce a remarkably competent rendition of ‘Ding Dong Merrily on High’, featuring the former Chelsea goalkeeper’s proficient percussion and a few rising keyboard chords from Sanchez.

The show is, however, undoubtedly stolen by Monreal’s indispensable skills on the sleigh bells.

The busking stunt came on the day that Arsenal's players and staff donated a day's wages to the club charity, with the proceeds going towards good causes, including the construction of football pitches for refugee children in Iraq.

If you’re suitably impressed by the Fab Three, you can donate to the Arsenal Foundation by texting AFCF12 with a donation to 70070.
