Police deny claims of Wenger-Davids tunnel bust-up

The Metropolitan Police have denied that officers were forced to intervene in a tunnel confrontation between Arsene Wenger and Edgar Davids after Saturday's north London derby.

Wenger and Davids were reported to have clashed when the Arsenal boss accused Tottenham's Dutch midfielder of cheating during the controversial 1-1 draw at Highbury.

It has been claimed that, amid fears the dispute might escalate, officers split up the pair and escorted them to the changing rooms.

But a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police insisted this morning that no incident occurred in the tunnel.

'As is always the case, police are in the tunnel area at the end of every game. But no officer was involved or witnessed any altercation between Mr Wenger and Mr Davids,' said the spokesman.

Wenger was furious with Tottenham's 66th-minute opener which saw Michael Carrick and Davids set up Robbie Keane.

The Arsenal boss felt Tottenham should have stopped play following a collision between Emmanuel Eboue and Gilberto Silva which left both players injured.

Wenger squared up to Martin Jol in the dugout and after the match he branded the Spurs boss a 'liar' for claiming he did not see the incident and labelled the goal a 'disgrace'.
