Declan Rice and Gabriel spotted in heated argument during Fulham game

Declan Rice and Gabriel spotted in heated argument during Fulham game

Declan Rice and Gabriel's exchange on the pitch was spotted by fans against Fulham.

Arsenal pair Declan Rice and Gabriel Magalhaes were spotted getting into an intense argument in the 2-1 defeat against Fulham this afternoon.

The Gunners responded swiftly to the disappointing 2-0 defeat to West Ham at the Emirates by going 1-0 up early on through Bukayo Saka.

But Raul Jimenez levelled matters on the half hour mark before Bobby Decordova-Reid put Marco Silva's side in front by capitalising on a comedy of errors from Arsenal.

Arsenal looked all over the place and Gabriel was seen shouting at Rice in one sequence in the second half.

With the score at 1-1, the Brazilian gestured "one" to the England international as he shouted, with Rice arguing back and throwing his arms out to give his view.

It was not long after the disagreement that Decordova-Reid scored for Fulham from a corner in which the ball bounced off both Rice and Takehiro Tomiyasu and into the path of the goalscorer.

Rice has been imperious for large spells this season after his £105 million move from West Ham in the summer.

But he gave away a penalty in the 2-0 defeat to his former side on Thursday and struggled up against Joao Palhinha at Craven Cottage.

Defeat against Fulham saw Arsenal suffer a fourth loss in the Premier League this term and finish the year in fourth spot, just a single point ahead of rivals Spurs after their 3-1 victory over Bournemouth.

They remain level on points with Manchester City, who have a game in hand against Brentford still to play.

Liverpool will therefore finish 2023 at the summit and they can go five points clear with a win over Newcastle on New Year's Day.
