Kieran Tierney’s involvement in our game at Manchester City has been in major doubt over the past week.
The left-back has been in quarantine after being deemed to have been in close contact with Scotland team-mate Stuart Armstrong, who tested positive for coronavirus.
So what is the latest on the situation? This is what Mikel Arteta said:
on Kieran Tierney...
This is getting very complicated when we are sending players abroad and obviously you lose control, some authorities have different regulations to the actual ones in the Premier League. We are still having some discussions with the authorities and hopefully we will know more this afternoon.
on whether Tierney tested positive in the summer...
I cannot discuss individual medical things here.
on whether Tierney could play this weekend...
I hope so.
