Mikel Arteta likes to keep his Arsenal players on their toes and there is no better way to do that than show he has still got it. 

In training it was to be captain Martin Odegaard who was his latest victim as Arteta showed no mercy in a training rondo drill. 

Arteta, who enjoyed spells with Arsenal and Everton as a player, got the ball and nutmegged Odegaard with ease.

Arteta could not believe he pulled the move off on one of his star men and he ran off in celebration, to the amusement of his players. 

Running back to give Odegaard a playful hug, Arteta then completed his celebration by mimicking Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘Siuuu’ celebration.

Odegaard was able to see the funny side as his manager shared a laugh and a joke after getting one over him. 

It showed the great team spirit in the Gunners’ camp as they prepare to take on Lens at home in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Arsenal are top of Group B after four games with three wins and one defeat, which actually came in a 2-1 defeat away to Lens. 

A win over Lens would guarantee top spot in the group and secure safe passage through to the last-16. 

‘It’s not easy to qualify out of the group, 100 percent. You need to sweat and give a lot in games to win,’ Arteta said on Tuesday.

‘It makes me proud and it makes me feel that this is the level this club should be at. We have come back to Europe to be the club that we want to be.

‘To tell the people we are back in the way that we want to be.’

Arteta's side can secure passage to the last-16 and top spot in the group if they defeat Lens
