Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Brighton at the weekend is set to go ahead despite members of the Gunners squad being placed in self-isolation.

Arsenal have placed some players and staff in self-isolation as a precaution, but the 14-day period recommended by health officials elapses on Thursday night.

Brighton have released a statement confirming they still expect the game on Saturday to go ahead.

“The risk is considered extremely low and Saturday’s match remains scheduled to go ahead with the self-isolation period for those players ending tomorrow, as we continue to follow government and medical advice with regard to the coronavirus.”

A statement from Arsenal read: “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.

“The players will remain at their homes until the 14-day period expires. Four Arsenal staff, who were sitting close to Mr Marinakis during the match will also remain at home until the 14 days are complete.”
