Manchester City defender Kyle Walker got into an argument with an Arsenal coach after his team lost to the Gunners, and Erling Haaland got involved.
The event occurred immediately after the final whistle of a tough game that Arsenal won 1-0.
Gabriel Martinelli’s deflected strike caught City goalkeeper Ederson off guard in the 85th minute, breaking the tie.
That was enough to send the Emirates into raptures, and the atmosphere remained electric both on and off the field after the game.
As the two sides returned to the tunnel, Sky Sports cameras captured Walker and Haaland being mobbed by referees and a member of the Arsenal coaching staff.
Later footage showed the England international squared up to Arsenal set piece coach Nicolas Jover, who used to work for City.
Haaland then approached the pair and defended his teammate, before the altercation was broken up and both players were escorted away.
Jover was seen flashing his finger towards Arsenal player Bukayo Saka, who was injured and missed the game.
It’s unclear what sparked Walker’s first argument with the set piece coach.
In his post-match press conference, City manager Pep Guardiola remained tight-lipped on the situation.
“I know what happened, but I don’t want to say,” he explained. They are aware of it.”
