Manchester City have confirmed that Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker, and two members of the club’s staff have tested positive for Covid-19.

All four will now enter into a period of self-isolation ahead of City’s Boxing Day match against Newcastle, who themselves have been adversely affected by the disease which has ruled Jamaal Lascelles and Allan Saint-Maximin out of action.

Both players featured in City’s 4-1 Carabao Cup win over Arsenal on Tuesday, with City due to host Newcastle in the Premier League on Boxing Day.

A club statement said: ‘Manchester City FC can confirm that Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker, and two members of staff have tested positive for COVID-19.

‘All four personnel will now observe a period of self-isolation in accordance with Premier League and UK Government protocol on quarantine.

‘Everyone at the Club wishes our colleagues a speedy recovery over the Christmas period ahead of their return to work, training and competition.’
