Arsenal was yesterday welcomed at the King Power Stadium by Leicester City and they won the game but fans have found video of Saliba and Gabriel fighting.
Arsenal’s centre-back pairing of William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhães had an altercation after the full-time whistle against Leicester City yesterday, despite keeping a clean sheet. The Gunners had a rapid start to the second half as Gabriel Martinelli finished into the bottom corner to give Arsenal a 1-0 lead.
The win saw Arsenal go two points clear at the top of the Premier League after 24 games, but Manchester City are still closely following them as they are just two points behind the North Londoners.
After the full-time whistle, Saliba and Magalhães were seen arguing on the pitch. It is unclear what sparked their disagreement. Here is the video below.
The altercation between Saliba and Magalhães was not well received by some Arsenal fans who were watching from home, with many taking to social media to express their disappointment in both players for not showing unity in such an important game.
Despite this incident, Arsenal will be pleased with their performance against Leicester City as they kept a clean sheet and earned three points which puts them two points clear at the top of the Premier League table. It remains to be seen if this incident will have any lasting effect on Saliba and Magalhães’ relationship or if it will be forgotten quickly as they focus on helping Arsenal maintain their position at the top of the table.
