Three Arsenal players were allegedly forced to withdraw from training after testing positive to COVID-19 last week which would have meant missing the City clash.
According to the Athletic reports, Arsenal was informed by Premier League that one of its players tested positive to the deadly virus and needed to be self-isolated for seven days.
It was gathered that the player had spent time alongside two of his teammates who also have to be quarantined for 14 days.
But Arsenal tested the player privately as he was asymptomatic in which the antigen and antibody tests came back negative.
Premier League conducted another testing took last Monday and this time the three players’ tests all came back negative and they were finally allowed to return to training at 5 pm on Tuesday, the final session on the evening before the City game.
