Mikel Arteta has revealed that Gabriel Magalhaes absence due to coming into contact with a positive test was not due to contact with other players.
Neither Wilian’s or David Luiz’s absence was related to his, nor was Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus positive test, and that the person was somebody from inside his personal bubble.
Gabriel will now have to be tested over the coming days, and the timing of his return will depend on those.
