Arsenal stars Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette were seen relaxing in the stands with a parasol during Arsenal’s clash with Southampton Thursday evening.
Ozil saw himself included in the squad for the first time since the league restarted but still didn’t manage to get on the pitch.
However, eagle-eyed fans spotted the German in the stands watching the game from beneath his umbrella.
Mikel Arteta opted to start Eddie Nketiah up front at St Mary’s Stadium and it meant Lacazette dropped to the bench.
However, many likely weren’t anticipating seeing the Frenchman also sat with his feet up and living his best life in the south coast sun.

McCarthy passed the ball straight to Nketiah in a moment of madness who strolled through and tapped the ball into an empty net.

Joe Willock netted his first ever Premier League goal late on to secure the three points.
