CEBALLOS BLOODIED IN ARSENAL TRAINING

Arsenal midfielder Dani Ceballos was reportedly left bloodied in the face after a training ground bust-up with Dani Ceballos. The fight between Dani Ceballos and David Luiz was revealed by Arsenal correspondent for The Athletic newspaper David Ornstein as well as John Cross, an Arsenal correspondent for the Daily Mirror.

It was disclosed that the fight started when David Luiz took an exception to a challenge from Dani Ceballos during training last week Friday. David Luiz confronted his Spanish teammate thereby leading to a fight that saw the Brazilian hit Ceballos in the face causing him to fall. Blood was seen on his face following the hit from the defender. Teammates and staff separated them before the two players were sent home by manager Mikel Arteta.

It was further revealed that the two players returned to Arsenal training on Tuesday and that they were made to publicly apologize for their behaviour last week. Both David Luiz and Dani Ceballos were snubbed by the Brazilian national team and the Spanish national team during the latest set of international matches this month. They stayed back to train at Arsenal last week alongside others who didn’t leave for international duty.

Normalcy has returned to the Arsenal training ground according to Ornstein as the Gunners prepare for a very important trip to Premier League newcomers Leeds United this weekend. Arteta would be hoping to bounce back from the poor defeat to Aston Villa shortly before the international break.

The Gunners were thoroughly beaten by their opponents with striker Ollie Watkins scoring twice in the second half to lead his team to an emphatic 3-0 win at the Emirates Stadium. An own goal had given Villa a first half lead before the Watkins show in the second half of the game. The defeat left Arsenal in the bottom half of the table.
