Ferdinand and Gerrard criticise Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey

Police forensic outside Manchester College after a 17-year-old boy suffered a stab wound to his chest and an 18-year-old man was stabbed in the back

Arsenal have beaten Basel at The Emirates and Bulgarian side Ludogorets home and away in the Champions League group stage.

Cavani escaped without a booking before clashing with Olivier Giroud as the two sets of players went down the tunnel.

In the seconds after the Gunners were awarded a penalty on the stroke of half time, Cavani tried to delay the spot kick by holding on to the ball. The incident prompted Ramsey to come to the aid of his Arsenal teammate.

As Ramsey slapped the ball out of the striker's hand, Cavani reacted by appearing to strike the midfielder in the chest and making slight contact with his chin while doing so.

Former Liverpool Captain Steven Gerard is evidently not happy with the fallout of the clash which occurred between Arsenal player Ramsey and Paris St Germain's Cavani.

However, the official was unfazed by the theatrics of the two players and made a decision to hand a warning rather than a yellow card.

"I think it's one of them things Aaron will look back on and he'll be slightly embarrassed", he said to BT Sport.

"I thought the Welsh are meant to be tough!"

"I think there was a bit of over-reacting from Ramsey", Ferdinand said during his punditry duties for BT Sport.

Fellow pundit Rio Ferdinand echoed Gerrard's take on the incident.

"I feel for him, but we're in it together".
