Just In: Chelsea Winger Tests Positive For Coronavirus

Arsenal has closed their training ground as a result of Arteta's positive test, with Gunners players and club staff who had recent contact with the Spaniard now forced to self-isolate.

Arsenal's game against Brighton on Saturday was postponed after it was announced that Gunners boss Mikel Arteta had tested positive for coronavirus and that his players are now self-isolating.

The news casts the viability of this weekend's games further into doubt after Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta tested positive, also throwing their team into lockdown.

Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi has tested positive for coronavirus.

A "significant number of people" at Arsenal will self-isolate, including the "full first-team squad".

The Premier League will hold "an emergency club meeting" on Friday to discuss future fixtures.

Chelsea are scheduled to play Aston Villa in Birmingham on Sunday (NZ time) but that match is certain to be cancelled.

The English Premier League club said Hudson-Odoi, 19, had displayed symptoms similar to a mild cold and was kept away from the training ground this week as a precaution.

He was however tested on Thursday morning before the result came out in the night that Callum Hudson-Odoi is now a carrier of the epidemic.

"This is really disappointing but I took the test after feeling poorly", Arteta said in a statement on Arsenal's website.

"Hopefully the Premier League will make strong decisions based on what is right for everybody within the game". "I hope to see everybody soon and hopefully will be back on the pitch very soon".

"Those who have not had close contact with Callum are expected to return to work in the coming days". In the meantime, the men's team building, one of several separate buildings at our training ground, will remain closed.

Leicester City had three players go into self-isolation on Thursday and Bournemouth said goalkeeper Artur Boruc and four staff members were also self-isolating.

"Above all, we wish Mikel Arteta and Callum Hudson-Odoi speedy recoveries, and everyone else affected by COVID-19".

It's believed City and France defender Benjamin Mendy has also put himself into self-isolation after displaying symptoms while the Blues confirmed the first case of a Premier League footballer.
