A video shows how the scuffle between Kyle Walker and the Arsenal coach unfolded following Manchester City's defeat.
Gabriel Martinelli scored the only goal of the game as his deflected strike sealed all three points for his side in a huge win at the Emirates.
Emotions were running high after the final whistle with the Arsenal faithful enjoying the victory over their domestic rivals.
Players also felt the pressure as Walker was involved in an altercation with Arsenal's set-piece coach Nicolas Jover. Check it out below:
As the Man City players left the pitch, Jover, who used to work at the Etihad, approached the defender to shake his hand.
But Walker refused to shake his hand as he reacted angrily to Jover's gesture, squaring up him. Erling Haaland got involved, too, before chaos ensued as members from both teams got involved.
The 33-year-old, who was still raging, eventually went down the tunnel along with his teammates.
Speaking after the game, Pep Guardiola remained tight-lipped over the incident.
"I know what happened, but I don't want to say anything. They know it," he said.
Asked if he was happy with Arsenal's conduct, he replied: "Yeah, absolutely."
