Labour MP for Tottenham David Lammy has slammed the four Premier League stars who broke Covid-19 rules for a Christmas Day gathering.
Lammy took to Twitter to hit out at Tottenham trio Giovani Lo Celso, Erik Lamela and Sergio Reguilon as well as West Ham's Manuel Lanzini, labelling the foursome "stupid and selfish".
The Labour MP wrote: "Lo Celso, Lamela, Reguilon and Lanzini breaking lockdown rules over Christmas! So damn stupid and selfish. It just beggars belief."
The four players were pictured together with their families in an image posted to Instagram in what is believed to be Lo Celso's house.
A total of 11 other adults, two children, and a baby are also pictured.
Tier 4 guidelines prohibits households from meeting indoors.

Spurs said in a statement: "We are extremely disappointed and strongly condemn this image showing some of our players with family and friends together at Christmas.
"Particularly as we know the sacrifices everybody around the country made to stay safe over the festive period.
"The rules are clear, there are no exceptions, and we regularly remind all our players and staff about the latest protocols and their responsibilities to adhere and set an example.
"The matter will be dealt with internally."
A West Ham statement added: "The Club has set the highest possible standards with its protocols and measures relating to Covid-19 so we are disappointed to learn of Manuel Lanzini's actions.
"The matter has been dealt with internally and Manuel has been strongly reminded of his responsibilities."
