Samir Nasri and Marouane Chamakh were confronted by angry Arsenal fans outside the Emirates Stadium before the Gunners 2-0 defeat against Manchester City on Sunday.

Nasri has become something of a villain at the Emirates Stadium since he completed his move to the Citizens in the summer of 2011, while Chamakh is hardly a fan favourite either and was recently shipped out on loan to West Ham.

Now a video has emerged of the pair being berated by Arsenal fans before yesterday’s game, with one supporter confronting Nasri, only for Chamakh to step in and push him away.

Nasri, who was suspended for the game yesterday after being sent off against Norwich, was making his way to the stadium alongside his former team-mate when some Arsenal fans began shouting obscenities towards the pair.

Both players can then be seen in the video trying to make their way through the crowds while being verbally abused, before disappearing towards the stadium.

While tempers flared outside the stadium it was hardly a sedate affair inside either as Manchester City recorded a 2-0 win over the Gunners in controversial circumstances.

Laurent Koscielny was sent off early in the first half for hauling down Edin Dzeko in the penalty box, and although the Bosnian missed the resulting penalty, the reigning champions made their numerical advantage count to take a two goal lead before captain Vincent Kompany also saw red.
