Declan Rice in Heated Argument with Arsenal Teammate as Gunners’ Title Hopes Fade

Rice and Gabriel Clash in Fulham Defeat

Arsenal midfielder Declan Rice was caught in a blazing row with teammate Gabriel during their 2-1 defeat to Fulham. The Gunners' title hopes took another hit as they suffered a comeback loss at Craven Cottage on Sunday.

Tensions Boil Over

Tempers flared during the match, with Rice and Gabriel engaged in a heated exchange just moments before Fulham took the lead. The pair were seen pointing and shouting at each other, with Gabriel even shouting at Rice in front of goalkeeper David Raya.

Unfortunate Loss

Arsenal had initially taken the lead through a goal from Bukayo Saka, but were pegged back by Raul Jimenez. Their afternoon got worse when Bobby De Cordova-Reid scored the winner for Fulham less than two minutes later.

Setback for Arsenal

This defeat adds to Arsenal's recent struggles, coming after a 2-0 home loss to West Ham. The Gunners have only picked up a single point in their three matches over the festive period, and now sit in fourth place behind Manchester City and Aston Villa.

Next Steps for Arsenal

Arsenal will have a break from league action until they face Crystal Palace on January 20. In the meantime, Liverpool could extend their lead over the Gunners to five points with a win against Newcastle on Monday night.
