Arsenal players Mesut Özil and Sead Kolašinac escaped a frightening carjacking attempt in London after confronting their attackers.
In a video shared on social media, Kolašinac can be seen fighting off the gang in Platts Lane, near Golders Green, reportedly at around 5pm on Thursday evening.

The 26-year-old left back appears to get out of the vehicle as the assailants on mopeds brandish knives, before Özil drives off.
The pair were later pictured speaking to police and the club confirmed that both were unharmed following the incident.
These were the best jokes as Sead Kolašinac fights off carjackers in north London with his Arsenal teammate Mesut Özil:

The more I think about it the Kolasniac clip is the highlight of the 19/20 Arsenal season.

Typical of Ozil to leave the full back with no protection

If Arsenal really want to sign Wilfried Zaha, they just need to send Kolasinac to Crystal Palace’s training ground. He’ll come back with both Zaha and the £80 million. pic.twitter.com/QGdbBLrCEV

Kolasniac is either too brave or that he hates playing in the Europa League so much he became suicidal https://t.co/9Yq3xE8Gtf
