No punches were thrown between Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong and Manchester City's Samir Nasri in their clash last night.

The Daily Mail says Nasri was involved in a tunnel bust-up with former Arsenal team-mate Frimpong after helping Manchester City reach the Carling Cup semi-finals.

The pair, who clashed on Twitter when Nasri left for City earlier in the season, gestured to each other as they approached the tunnel after the final whistle of a tie settled by Sergio Aguero's only goal.

Arsenal denied punches were thrown but a witness confirmed the players confronted each other as they left for the dressing rooms at the Emirates Stadium.
