Footage of a conversation between Manchester City pair Riyad Mahrez and John Stones has emerged following the Champions League final - with fans believing they had an argument.
City slipped to a 1-0 defeat against Chelsea on Saturday night thanks to Kai Havertz's strike in the first half.
Havertz managed to slip between Stones and Ruben Dias and he calmly dinked the ball round Ederson before firing home.
In the tunnel just before the second half started, Mahrez looked to be in discussion with Stones and many believe it was about City's defending.
The Algerian international makes a gesture towards Stones and then grabs him, appearing to tell him to 'get tight' on Chelsea's attackers.
Both men continue their conversation going down the tunnel before taking up their positions on the pitch.
Mahrez and Stones have had great seasons in sky blue, with Mahrez being a key player in attack.
The 30-year-old scored 14 goals in all competitions while also providing nine assists.
Stones, meanwhile, has been a regular next to Ruben Dias in defence and has even earned a recall to the England squad.
Fans did notice the 'argument' however and were quick to discuss on social media.

Interesting tunnel cam footage of Mahrez telling Stones to stop hesitating going in for tackles. Looked very nervous at the back, constantly backtracking from Chelsea runners.- Tennus :flag_gb: (@Tennus7) May 29, 2021
Stones was having a heated debate with Mahrez in th tunnel, presumably about the lack of help he and Walker got in the first half on the City right. #MCFC- Stuart Brennan (@StuBrennanMEN) May 29, 2021

Mahrez to Stones in the tunnel - Wallahi if you pass to sterling on the left wing one more time I'll snap your legs even though I'm on your team- :o2:️ (@THFCres) May 29, 2021
Victory for Chelsea has capped off a remarkable debut campaign for Thomas Tuchel, who took over in January following Frank Lampard's sacking.
