Arteta  Arsenal

Arsenal are due to resume training on Tuesday

Arsenal players are due to return back to the training ground next Tuesday after they spent the period of 14-days in self-isolation.

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta tested positive for COVID-19 last week, which led to the postponement of Arsenal's game at Brighton. The news also played a part in the Premier League decision to cancel all fixtures until April 4, at the earliest.

Arsenal players and staff were forced into a 14-day self-isolation, following the government guidelines about the coronavirus outbreak.

That quarantine period ends on Tuesday and the club's London Colney training base is due to reopen and resume training. The player will prepare to meet Norwich on April 4.

Arteta has tested positive for the coronavirus, but he is reportedly feeling better and is ready to return.

After it was revealed that the Olympiakos owner Evangelos Marinakis had contracted the virus a number of Arsenal players were already self-isolating even before Arteta's result were clear .

Those player of the team who had a close contact with Marinakas when the Greek side's shock Europa League win at the Emirates Stadium were in isolation and that led to the postponement of the already rescheduled Premier League trip to Manchester to face Manchester City.

Some of the Premier League clubs were in self-isolation and others are still in operation. 

Chelsea players and the staff were in self-isolation after the winger Callum Hudson - Odoi tested positive for the virus last Thursday. Leicester players had some days off and the return date is still not clear.

Liverpool players are also staying at their homes. They have individual training programmes to stay in shape.

Manchester City are not giving any information on their plans for now. Manchester United have halted the first-team training following the government guidelines.

Tottenham players are one of the very few who are still playing, but they do it only on weekdays.
