Kyle Walker posts defiant message on Instagram after furious Arsenal bust-up

Manchester City defender Kyle Walker has posted a defiant message on Instagram following his confrontation with Arsenal set piece coach Nicolas Jover.

The incident occurred after Arsenal's 1-0 win over City at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Gabriel Martinelli scored a late winning goal for the Gunners after coming on as a second half substitute, and tensions were high after the full time whistle.

Sky Sports cameras showed Walker and team-mate Erling Haaland being pulled away by security as they headed down the tunnel, and it was initially unclear as to what happened.

Haaland then intervened to defend his team-mate, with security then being forced to get involved.

And footage has since cleared up what caused the row - which you can view below.

Afterwards, Walker broke his silence with a defiant post on Instagram.

However, the England international decided not to reference the bust-up with Jover at all - but did send a message to City fans.

He wrote: "Back to back defeats is a level we cannot and will not accept.

"We have a period of time now to put things right and regroup and show everyone our true level. Thank you for your support today."

The 1-0 loss to Arsenal, and 2-1 defeat at Wolves the weekend prior, has dropped Pep Guardiola's side down to third place in the Premier League table ahead of the international break.

Walker will join up with England for upcoming fixtures against Australia and Italy, with the latter of those a Euro 2024 qualifying clash.

Afterwards, the 34-year-old and his City team-mates will hope to put the recent bad Premier League results behind them and kick on towards a fourth successive league crown at the end of the season.
