Arsenal stars Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mathieu Debuchy and Kieran Gibbs showed off their impressive accuracy skills in a quite brilliant video.

The challenge, set up by Cooper Tire Europe - the ‘Official Tyre partner of Arsenal - tested the set-piece skills of the three players as they aimed to hit, or kick the ball through, a tyre.

The players earned one point for hitting the tyre and two points if they managed to strike the ball through, or in, the moving target.

The drill looks fairly hard but is made to look incredibly easy as the trio aim to impress manager Arsene Wenger, in an attempt to claim a regular starting spot.

Both Oxlade-Chamberlain and Gibbs somehow get their balls stuck in the tyres which sparked wild celebrations from the pair of them and prompted Oxlade-Chamberlain to ask “Did the boss see that?”

After the skills shown by the trio, Oxlade-Chamberlain joked that the organisers had “requested Ozil, Sanchez and Cazorla. Debuchy, Chamberlain and Gibbo turn up and we’ve surprised them all”
