The Mirror says Newcastle have insisted that Danny Rose, Allan Saint-Maximin, Nabil Bentaleb and Christian Atsu did nothing wrong after a video emerged of a minor flash-point on a train from Kings Cross.
The players opted not to fly home after a bumpy journey to London on United's private charter, and were given the option of rail travel instead.
But while trying to have a low key journey home, fed up at losing 4-0 at the Emirates, they were recognised by fans.
One fan dished out some unflattering thoughts on their performance, which was filmed by his friend, prompting Rose to stand up for himself verbally.
The fans were asked to leave the area by the train crew.
After the hammering today, bentaleb, atsu, maximin and rose for the train up, with newcastle fans. From what i’ve been told they refused to take pictures with a 10 year old fan and apparently danny rose has squared up with a fan! #nufcpic.twitter.com/JsZy8GAyAn — Leon Bell (@leoncb7) February 16, 2020
