It was Arsenal Women’s Christmas party on Thursday evening, which meant everyone had an excuse to get glammed up.

Arsenal Women’s 2017 has been up and down. From failing to win a trophy and Pedro Losa being sacked, to experienced new coach Joe Montemurro coming on board and the club dropping ‘Ladies’ from their title. Therefore, it’s good to see the squad letting their hair down.

Alex Scott, Jordan Nobbs and Danielle van de Donk shared numerous clips of the evening via their Instagram stories and it seems everyone had a brilliant time. There was food, drinks, live entertainment and a photobooth.

That was a fun night at the @arsenal Christmas party 🎄💃🏻

I imagine there were some sort heads Friday morning.

Arsenal Women now have to play Sunderland on Sunday in the Continental Cup before getting Christmas off. After the Black Cats, the Gunners don’t have another match until 7 January – Chelsea away in the FA WSL, which will be a massive game.

Arsenal go into their Christmas break third in the WSL table behind Chelsea and Manchester City. If the Gunners beat the Blues in January, they have the opportunity to go level on points, just two behind City at the top.

Therefore, I don’t see Arsenal squad going too overboard with their festive celebrations.
