Arsenal loanee Dani Ceballos has already taken to his Instagram story to downplay the heated pre-match clash with teammate Eddie Nketiah.

As Arsenal’s substitutes trained ahead of this afternoon’s Premier League opener against Fulham, the duo squared off and had a shoving match after Ceballos turned in a heavy challenge on Nketiah.

The pair actually faced off twice, but the situation was brought to a halt when hard-man Sead Kolasinac and a coach were forced to intervene.

Ceballos has now posted a picture with Nketiah as the Gunners’ are leaving Craven Cottage following their 3-0 victory, captioning the image with ‘No problems here my brother.’

Mikel Arteta revealed after the match that he didn’t actually see the incident:

The thumbs up from Eddie all but confirms that there’s no longer any bad blood, undoubtedly a welcome boost for Mikel Arteta.
