When Arsenal faced Southampton, a couple of the club’s biggest names were spotted holding umbrellas while sitting in the stands to watch the game.

Alexandre Lacazette and unused sub Mesut Ozil were left out of the starting lineup for the Premier League clash at St Mary’s Stadium on Thursday evening.

Many fans were quick to notice the highly-paid stars relaxing and shielding themselves from the bright summer sun with the red, official team umbrellas.

With the stadium empty due to a lack of fans because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and social distancing enforced off the pitch, the pair had space to lounge about as they watched the 2-0 away win.
