The pair were seen arguing just moments before Fulham took the lead
Goals from Raul Jimenez and Bobby De Cordova-Reid sealed a comeback victory for the home side.
Tempers appeared to boil over during the match, with Rice and Gabriel spotted in a heated exchange.
Just moments before De Cordova-Reid’s winner, the pair were seen pointing and shouting at each-other.
Gabriel could be seen shouting at Rice in front of goalkeeper David Raya, before the midfielder argued back.
Arsenal had already been pegged back by Jimenez after taking an early lead through Bukayo Saka.
However, their afternoon got even worse less than two minutes later as De Cordova-Reid put the Cottagers in front.
The setback comes after Arsenal’s humiliating 2-0 home loss to West Ham on Thursday, which further damaged their title chances.
Mikel Arteta’s team only managed one point from the three games they played over the holiday season.
Arsenal now sits fourth in the standings, behind Aston Villa and Manchester City, who still have a game to play.
