Arsenal squad and staff test negative for Covid-19

Arsenal’s squad and staff underwent routine Covid-19 testing on Monday and all results came back today as negative, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic.

The Gunners played West Ham at the Emirates last Saturday and won the game 2-1 thanks to a late winner scored by Eddie Nketiah. West Ham manager David Moyes, Issa Diop and Josh Cullen tested positive for the coronavirus earlier today ahead of their League Cup game against Hull. All three of them left the stadium immediately to begin their quarantine.

Having come in contact with the East London side so recently, there were fears that members of the North London side’s squad and staff might have been exposed to the coronavirus. Those fears have been put to rest with the news that all Arsenal personnel have tested negative.

They will continue to operate in the same manner, according to Charles Watts of Goal. The squad will remain the bubble that is meant to keep them as safe as possible. 

The North London club will take on Leicester City in the third round of the League Cup at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday evening. Their next Premier League game is against Liverpool at Anfield on Monday. 

We hope Moyes, Diop and Cullen make a full recovery as soon as possible.
