Those who were not away with their national sides took part in a practice match last Friday and The Athletic has learned that as manager Mikel Arteta blew the final whistle, David Luiz took exception to a challenge by Dani Ceballos and retaliated by hitting him in the face, a scratch drawing blood.

Reports suggested David Luiz and Dani Ceballos had been involved in a physical adjustment following an argument after an inter-squad training match during the worldwide break.

However, the opposite has happened at the north London club, with the report suggesting Arteta brought both players together in the dressing room to clear the air following the incident.

Earlier this season, Ceballos and another teammate, Eddie Nketiah, were involved in a short and quickly defused altercation during the warm up Arsenal's game against Fulham at Craven Cottage.

However, the United Arab Emirates is not on the UK's quarantine list and the 32-year-old Brazilian has been able to return to training this week.

Under coronavirus restrictions in the England, global travel is not permitted apart from for limited purposes such as work or education.

"That's been dealt with and explained".

The duo were among a group of players who did not travel for global duty and have been preparing for their Premier League game against Leeds this Sunday.

"We had a conversation and I explained what I was expecting", added Arteta.

"Whether they are right or wrong, after obviously it is a thing we have to discuss".

Arteta will also be unable to call on deadline day signing Thomas Partey at Elland Road with the Ghana midfielder missing through a thigh injury suffered during the 3-0 home defeat to Aston Villa.
