Ben White centre of frosty incident moments before Haaland bust-up at Arsenal

Ben White shared an awkward moment with Phil Foden before Arsenal and Manchester City stars clashed at full-time.

The England international team-mates both extended a hand but barely looked at each other before attentions turned to the bust-up which was led by Kyle Walker and Erling Haaland. Arms were at full extension between the defender and playmaker – and fans noticed.

Following the 1-0 win thanks to Gabriel Martinelli, an Arsenal fan posted with a clip of White vs Foden: "Foden and Ben White having a frosty handshake at the end. Definitely don’t like each other."

The incident came after a much nastier clash between pair last season, with Foden shoving the former Brighton man with two arms before being split up.

On that occasion Haaland charged towards the 26-year-old to have his say, as he did to assist Walker on Sunday.

The disagreement reportedly began when Arsenal set-piece coach Nicolas Jover tried to shake the hand of City skipper Walker.

He said: "I know what happened, but I don't want to say anything."
