Some players among Arsenal players tested negative initially for covid, but they showed signs that they may be infected. As a result, many players were asked to self-isolate while waiting to be tested again.
Further tests have now revealed that Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhaes tested positive for coronavirus. Since Luiz and Willian were in close contact with Gabriel Magalhaes, they were told to self-Isolate until further notice. They missed Arsenal’s last game against Chelsea but the team didn’t miss them, Arsenal beat Chelsae comfortable 3 – 1.
However, Willian and David Luiz are back in training after they have tested negative twice. Arsenal’s next game will be against Brighton and it will take place tomorrow, December 29, 2020.
David Luiz and Willian will be available for the match but we are not sure if they will play since Mikel Arteta is willing to give his young academy guys more minutes because they are performing better than the senior players.
This is just a quick update, more information will come soon and we will update you if anything changes. Since Arsenal only played have one player out due to Covid, the team should be able to face Brighton tomorrow.
