The north London team decided to create an 84-second video to wish its Chinese fans a happy Chinese New Year.

The video was posted on the team's official Twitter account yesterday, 1 February.

The video features a few of Arsenal's players speaking in Mandarin while reenacting typical situations we encounter during Chinese New Year
