Dani Ceballos and Eddie Nketiah were involved in a heated clash during the warm-up for Arsenal’s Premier League opener against Fulham.
The Gunners duo, who are both on the bench for the trip to Craven Cottage, were caught angrily pushing and shoving after a fallout during a training drill.
Nketiah appeared riled by a strong challenge from Ceballos, who then pushed his teammate away.
The ball then makes its way back to Nketiah, and the pair square-up to each other.
Arms begin to flail before their fellow substitutes got involved to calm things down.
Rio Ferdinand, working as a pundit for BT Sport, played down the incident.
He said: “Sometimes it gets heated, you’ll see that once or twice a week at the training ground.
“It just so happens we’ve been here to see it.
“I wouldn’t be too disappointed with that.”
Instead, Mikel Arteta sprang a suprise by naming Mohamed Elneny in midfield, while Alexandre Lacazette started up front despite rumours of a potential move away from the Emirates.
Nketiah and Ceballos were both sat at opposite ends of the bench as they came out for the first-half.
