Pep Guardiola said he knew what happened at the emirate stadium but would not go in to detail after Kyle Walker and Erling Haaland were involved in a heated exchange with members of Arsenal’s backroom staff following Manchester City’s 1-0 defeat.

After the final whistle at Emirates Stadium, Walker and Haaland confronted Arsenal set-piece coach Nicolas Jover, who previously worked at City.

As the players headed towards the tunnel at full-time, Walker turned back to confront Jover, with Haaland joining him, before several players and members of staff from both clubs acted to separate them.

The disagreements continued as the Manchester City players left the field, with Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka taking Jover away from the situation.

Jover was at City from 2019 until 2021, when he joined the club’s former assistant manager Arteta at the Gunners.

The Football Association will be taking no action having reviewed footage of the incident.
