Who Will Be The Next Smoking Gunner To Be Fined?

After it was revealed that Wojciech Szczesny has been fined £20,000 for smoking in the shower after Arsenal’s defeat against Southampton, William Hill have opened a market on the next Gunner to be punished for sparking up.

Occasional tabber, Jack Wilshere heads the betting at 3/1 followed by cigar fan, Olivier Giroud and Szczesny both at 4/1.

“Arsenal very nearly have a full XI of smokers and that will undoubtedly irk Arsene Wenger who may start handing out puffing penalties willy nilly,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Next Arsenal player fined for smoking*: 3/1 Jack Wilshere; 4/1 Olivier Giroud; 4/1 Wojciech Szczesny; 9/2 Laurent Koscielny; 8/1 Mesut Ozil; 10/1 Alexis Sanchez; 12/1 Calum Chambers; 12/1 Santi Cazorla; 14/1 Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain; 14/1 Danny Welbeck

*Not including Szczesny’s £20k fine for smoking the shower after Southampton match
