Arsenal have had a difficult time recently, and it would be no surprise to hear that some of their players wanted to escape reality.
They were afforded an opportunity to forget their 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich earlier this week on Thursday when they attended a launch night held by Oculus.
Arsene Wenger's players tried on the virtual reality headsets and looked to be having a great time at the event, with left back Nacho Monreal the most obviously enthusiastic about the technology.

Monreal was joined at the event by compatriots Lucas Perez and Hector Bellerin, and fellow Spanish speaker Emiliano Martinez also attended.
And Martinez took to Instagram to express how much he had enjoyed using the Oculus Rift.
He wrote: 'Down time with the boys last night @Oculus event!'
The foursome played a basketball game at the event, which was also attended by celebrities Jonathan Ross, Nick Grimshaw and band Foals.
