New footage emerges of Kyle Walker's furious bust up with Arsenal coach Nicolas Jover

New footage has emerged of Kyle Walker’s altercation with Arsenal set piece coach Nicolas Jover.
A tepid game at the Emirates Stadium was given a stunning finale in the 86th minute with both sides having looked certain to settle for a point.
Making his return from a hamstring injury as a substitute, Martinelli's deflected strike went in off Nathan Ake to earn Arsenal a first league win over City since December 2015 and give Mikel Arteta’s side early momentum in the title race.
Directly after the game footage emerged on Sky Sports Super Sunday of Walker squaring up to Arsenal set piece coach Jover, formally of City.
Walker’s team-mate Erling Haaland subsequently defended his team-mate, with security being forced to intervene to pull away the City pair and direct them down the tunnel.
The publication alleged that Jover kept his hands firmly behind his back and showed no interest in pleasantries following the defeats.
But the set piece coach is said to have actively sought out Walker on this occasion after Arsenal’s win, which caused the subsequent altercation, new footage of which can be seen below.
City will be bitterly disappointed after the loss, having to go back to December 2018 to recall the taste of successive Premier League defeats, when they lost at home to Crystal Palace and away at Leicester City. The club dropped only three further points that season after the double jolt.
After Sunday’s Arsenal defeat City boss Pep Guardiola said: "We started really well with two or three chances. They started the second half really well with the rhythm. Then it was tight and they got a deflection goal. They won, congratulations to them.
"We tried. We did it. I think from both sides there was not a lot of chances. I think both teams did good high pressing. It was tight and in the end, one action, we lost the game. Ten minutes was like that [Arsenal on top] and after it was equal. We had also our moments but in general it was a tight game. Unfortunately, they did it.
"We can lose in Wolves as well. Now we have two defeats in a row and then we have the internationals. Hopefully, they come back fit and then we go again. Maybe it is a little bit better to be there and see what we have to do to catch them and then [we will] when we come back. We will come back and continue. We will move forward."
