Dani Ceballos and Eddie Nketiah have already made up after clashing during Arsenal’s warm up before Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Fulham on the opening day of the Premier League season.

Both players were named on the bench at Craven Cottage and were taking part in a rondo drill with the rest of the substitutes, though tempers flared when Ceballos went in late on his teammate.

The initial challenge resulted in a furious exchange of words and a shove from the Spaniard, with the incident escalating after a second late and overly zealous tackle.

Ceballos got in Nketiah’s face, who stood his ground, and the pair started pushing and screaming at each other before a member of the coaching team pulled the striker away.

BT Sport’s punditry team played down the incident, with Rio Ferdinand claiming it happens all the time in training, and it appears the two players have already forgotten about it.
