Arsenal's in-form stars just can't get enough of each other as they bask in the glow of seven Premier League wins on the spin, using an afternoon off to go paintballing in a team bonding session involving most of the first-team squad.

Gunners star Kieran Gibbs was first to share news of a trip of a Monday afternoon shoot-out with his fans on social media, although judging from the look on his face in the post-painball photo he posted the England defender was definitely on the losing side.

Danny Welbeck and Santi Cazorla look pretty smug either side of the full-back, so it doesn't take much guesswork to assume who were the sharpshooters on an excursion for a side still riding high from Saturday's 4-1 success over Liverpool.

How could you not love Cazorla?

Cazorla in particular just doesn't look like a top-flight footballer in that photo, which just can't help but endear you to the technically-gifted Spanish schemer.

Arsenal's newest recruit Gabriel Paulista looks a little worse for wear next to Cazorla, but for someone who is still adjusting to life in North London any chance to spend extra time with his team-mates probably did the Brazilian defender a world of good.

Four stars missing from the battlefield

There were no fewer than four members of Arsene Wenger's squad that skipped the trip to the fun-filled battlefield, but with good reason.

Club captain Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere, Abou Diaby and German youngster Serge Gnabry had better things to do, as they prepare to step up their comebacks by featuring for the under-21s against Stoke City at the Emirates this evening.

The quartet are tantalisingly close to returning and are all expected to play at least 45 minutes later tonight, yet another reason for Wenger to be very pleased with life at London Colney at this moment in time.

Arsenal have certainly turned a corner in 2015 and proved Wenger's faith in his current crop is justified, now they have the challenge of winning silverware and finishing at least second to prove this season has represented progress despite a very disappointing start.
