Arsenal stars Tomas Rosicky & Lukas Podolski have become the latest pair to partake in a heated exchange in front of the fans this season.

The Gunners crashed out of the first knockout stage of the Champions League for the fourth season in a row, losing 3-1 to current holder Bayern Munich on aggregate.

A spirited second leg performance earned them a 1-1 draw at the Allianz Arena but it ultimately ended in frustration for Arsene Wenger's men.

Podolski had levelled the game for Arsenal after getting away with a push on Philipp Lahm but it appeared Rosicky still wasn't satisfied with the German's performance.

Rosicky approached Podolski after the final whistle to exchange some heated words, which, as it appears, were not taken too kindly by his teammate.

It is the second time Arsenal players argued on the pitch while playing Bayern Munich this season.

Mathieu Flamini and Mesut Ozil almost came to blows in the first leg after the Frenchman confronted Ozil over his failure to track his marker. Ozil responded with a push before Flamini dropped the tirade.

The German playmaker also found himself on the receiving end of hounding from Per Mertesacker following Arsenal's 6-3 defeat to Manchester City last season. Ozil had refused to applaud the away fans and Mertesacker let him know exactly what he thought about it.

Finally, images appeared last month of Jack Wilshere and Flamini appearing to have an argument before Bacary Sagna intervened to calm the Englishman down.

Arsenal face a battle to save their season in the coming weeks, facing tough games away to Tottenham and Chelsea before hosting Manchester City.
