Coronavirus: Man City Vs Arsenal Game Postponed Over Players Isolation

Premier League game between Manchester City and Arsenal which was scheduled for tonight has been postponed “as a precautionary measure” because of coronavirus.

The decision to postpone the big clash between the two sides came after some players and staff of Arsenal had contact with the Olympiacos owner, Evangelos Marinakis, who has now been diagnosed with coronavirus.

The wealthy Greek businessman, who also owns Nottingham Forest, watched the Greek side beat the north London club at the Emirates Stadium during their last month’s Europa League clash, and met multiple players and officials afterward.

As a precaution, the players and staff affected have been placed in self-isolation for 14-days, but Thursday will be the last day of the isolation. That is because the meeting between Marinakis and the Arsenal officials took place 13 days ago.
