  • Watch in awe as Carl Jenkinson thrashes Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny in Arsenal skills test

    Shkodran Mustafi is a World Cup winner. has been Arsenal's best defender for years. There is a very good reason these two are Arsenal's first choice centre-backs. Carl Jenkinson, on the other hand, is the guy who hasn't played for this year and happily posed for THIS picture in his bedroom: Bear all that in mind when you watch the clip at the top of the page - the clip which shows Jenkinson absolutely battering Mustafi and Koscielny in a skills challenge.

As you can see in thecontent_img video, Mustfi has a stinker. He doesn't hit the target once. Koscielny doesn't do much better, managing a score of two. But Jenkinson? He manages to cooly slot home four times, making him the clear winner. No doubt 'The Corporal' (as Jenkinson is sometimes known) will be keen to make sure Arsene Wenger sees the clip…

However, for some reason, we cannot stop imagining Raheem starring in his own spin-off version of Ferris Bueller's Day Off - the classic 1980s movie about a cocky young kid who bunks off school.

With the big finale being Raheem's incredibly brazen performance of Twist and Shout for his adoring public "I know! If I sing a song by famous Liverpudlians The Beatles, maybe the locals will love me again… and let me go and join Manchester City." Works, doesn't it? We could even use the same final line from the original - only in our version, we'd have it delivered by Liverpool fans, to Raheem: "Life moves pretty fast.
