Manchester United fans believe they have worked out which two players were involved in a training ground bust-up after fresh details of the altercation emerged.
On Saturday, The Sun revealed that two United players had be pulled apart after clashing at the club's Carrington training base on Thursday.
It came just days after United's humiliating 4-0 defeat to Brighton.
The incident brought the training session to a premature end and is said to have left teammates 'stunned'.
On Monday, Manchester Evening News journalist Samuel Luckhurst provided more details about the two individuals involved.
"The Carrington confrontation involved players who are, ironically, undeniably committed to United," Luckhurst wrote in the MEN.
"There is a wide age gap between them and both have generated plaudits from supporters this season.
"One of the players is not renowned for his truculence but his dedication and mentality are sound.
"He is not of the same nationality as his teammate and their mother tongue is not the same, either."
Some United supporters on social media have speculated whether the two individuals involved could be veteran goalkeeper David De Gea and promising youngster Anthony Elanga.
Other fans have guessed whether the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Scott McTominay could be involved.
However, Luckhurst says supporters on social media have failed to correctly identify the two individuals.
"There was a confrontation between two players but supporters have failed to correctly identify them," he added.

"Twitter is a subjective platform and a lot of United-related usernames have axes to grind with underperforming players they hope were involved."
The training ground bust-up is an unwanted distraction for United as they prepare to finish the season with a trip to Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Incoming manager Erik ten Hag is expected to arrive in Manchester the following week to begin his new role.
The Dutchman appears to have a difficult task ahead to unite the squad at Old Trafford.
