Manchester City-Arsenal: Coronavirus fears postpones Wednesday’s match

Wednesday night’s Premier League match between Manchester City and Arsenal has been postponed, the teams announced Tuesday.

The news comes as Olympiacos owner Evangelos Marinakis reportedly has recently contracted coronavirus, just over 10 days after Arsenal played Olympiacos at the English team’s home, Emirates Stadium. 

“As a result of this exercise we identified that a number of players met the Olympiacos owner immediately following the game,” the official release said. “The medical advice we have received puts the risk of them developing Covid-19 at extremely low. However, we are strictly following the Government guidelines, which recommend that anyone coming into close contact with someone with the virus should self-isolate at home for 14 days from the last time they had contact.”
