- Dani Ceballos and David Luiz were involved in a bust-up during one of Arsenal's training sessions
- The Brazilian was said to have been irritated by the Spaniard's tackle
- Luiz then hit him to the ground with blood coming out of Dani's face
Arsenal duo David Luiz and Dani Ceballos were reportedly involved in an altercation during their training session on Thursday, November 19.
Reports reveal that Brazil defender struck his Gunners teammate in the face which led to the midfielder bleeding.
Sources claim the former Chelsea centre-back wasn't comfortable with the tackle thrown at him by the Spaniard and he (Luiz) knocked Ceballos down.
Daily Mail citing The Athletic reveals the Spanish player immediately jumped up on his feet but both of them were separated by other teammates and staff members.
However, the Real Madrid player on loan at the North London side has branded the report 'fake' on his official Twitter account on Thursday evening.
The publication further disclosed that both players came back to apologise to their colleagues for disrupting the session and resumed training with no issue.
Meanwhile, the Gunners manager Mikel Arteta was said to have asked the two players to clear the air in the dressing room.
This is not the first time the Real Madrid on-loan midfielder has been involved in an altercation with one of his colleagues.
Before their Premier League opener at Fulham, Ceballos faced up to fellow substitute Eddie Nketiah during a drill in the warm-up.
The 21-year-old forward has since then pushed the disappointment behind him saying 'it is all love' between himself and the 24-year-old midfielder.
This setback came days after Arsenal's 3-0 shocking defeat to Aston Villa - a game that saw Ceballos came on as a substitute but Luiz was an unused substitute.
Meanwhile, the North Londoners are presented with fresh crisis from the international break after Mohamed Elneny was said to have tested positive for coronavirus among a number of issues.

The current senator representing Abia North in the Nigerian National Assembly stated that his target is to ensure the Gunners win the elusive Champions League as well as the Premier League back-to-back.
Recall that during his time as the governor of Abia between 1999 and 2007, local club Enyimba of Aba remained the kings of Nigerian football, winning the Nigeria Professional Football League five times - 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2007.
