ARSENAL fans have declared “it’s over” after a clip of Fulham’s stars flying a kite at training went viral ahead of their clash with Manchester City.

The Gunners are top of the Premier League with 83 points, one ahead of the reigning champions, with just two games to go.

But they could find themselves having to play catch-up when they travel to Manchester United on Sunday.

City, who have played a match less, head to Craven Cottage on Saturday lunchtime hoping to overtake Mikel Arteta’s side. 

Arsenal are desperate for their London neighbours, who cannot finish any higher than ninth or lower than 14th, to do them a huge favour despite them having little to play for.

However, some Gooners think that Fulham’s squad are already mentally “on their holidays” after they were given an insight into the intensity of their training.

Former Gunners winger Willian, Andreas Pereira and Rodrigo Muniz were also filmed flying kites at the training ground by striker Raul Jimenez.

The Mexican, whose team has won twice in eight, then posted it on his Instagram story – and it was soon spotted.

And concerned fans quickly replied to the clip understandably worried as one fumed: “We’re praying to the lord they get a result out of city and they’re in training flying kites??? Kmt.”

“It’s over for us,” predicted another, with the same sentiment being echoed by a third who wrote: “Arsenal fans, it’s over.”

A fellow supporter claimed: “Fulham on the beach already!”

A fifth said: “Our hopes are pinned on these guys.”

While a sixth posted: “This is the team we need to beat or draw to city man we’re so cooked.”

As the footage circulated even further across social media, the hilarious comments kept flooding in, and even fans of other clubs shared their sympathy.

“Gotta feel sorry for Arsenal. Not only City gonna win but goal difference will be clawed back,” added another.

While one more joked: “I don’t think there’s a bigger sign of a team being on the beach when our players are flying kites in training.”

City are back in action in the capital on Tuesday after the trip to Fulham.

This time it will be Arsenal’s bitter North London neighbours Tottenham that they will be praying for a favour from.

That then sets up both teams for what promises to be a thrilling final day of the season.

City will host West Ham on the last day while Arsenal will be looking to put Everton to the sword on home turf.

Mikel Arteta’s striker shopping list

By Jordan Davies

ARSENAL are stepping up plans to sign a world-class striker in the summer after their Champions League heartbreak.

Mikel Arteta splashed out £204.5m last summer on Declan Rice, Kai Havertz and Jurrien Timber.

But the Spanish manager accepts he needs a proven goalscorer to take the club to the next level.

And here are the players he is looking at to get the Gunners firing:

BENJAMIN SESKO (RB Leipzig, value £40m-£45m)

One for the future at 20 years old. Scored 16 goals for RB Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga last season and the Slovenian has carried on that good form in Germany with Leipzig this campaign.

VIKTOR GYOKERES (Sporting Lisbon, value £60m-£80m)

Been scouted several times this season. The Swedish striker, 25, is more of a traditional No 9 so may not suit Arsenal’s demand for flexibility but would bring a physicality that boss Mikel Arteta craves.

ALEXANDER ISAK (Newcastle, value £75m-£85m)

Impressed in his first two seasons in English football. The Swede, 24, has the pace and finesse to match his finishing ability, and Eddie Howe’s Toon may need to sell to balance the books this summer.

JOSHUA ZIRKZEE (Bologna, value £45m-£50m)

Dutch wonder  is attracting the attentions of clubs across Europe. At 6ft 4in the 22-year-old forward would have no trouble adapting to the Premier League and already has an eye for goal.

XAVI SIMONS (RB Leipzig, value £70m-£80m)

An incredible talent in the Bukayo Saka mould, currently on loan from Paris Saint-Germain. The future of the Dutch attacker, 20, depends on how much money his parent club want to make from him.
