The North London side have recently been criticised for their passionate celebrations after winning games.
After the win against Bournemouth, there was a probe from the FA as the club’s substitutes ran onto the pitch to celebrate Reiss Nelson’s late winner.
This was the inspiration for the parody in which Lucas plays club captain Martin Odegaard, and James portrays manager Mikel Arteta.
The Instagram video was captioned: “Arteta responds to the talk of Arsenal getting a little bit carried away.”
In the clip, Lucas goes to James to ask if he thought they were over-celebrating.
James then replies in a Spanish accent, saying, “No, no, I don’t think so.”
He then throws a scrap of paper into a bin which then leads the whole team to come running in and celebrate the shot.
It was liked almost 20,000 times on Instagram, including one from Fabregas.
