Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has revealed that he did not have Willian and David Luiz on the Gunners team that defeated Chelsea 3-1 in the Premier League on Boxing Day because the Brazilians had some symptoms of COVID-19 infections. .

Willian and Luiz, both former Chelsea players, were absent from Arsenal’s call-up against Frank Lampard’s side, as three goals from Alexandre Lacazette, Granit Xhaka and Bukayo Saka gave Arteta’s men all three points at the Emirates Stadium.

Tammy Abraham scored a consolation goal late in the second half for Chelsea.

The victory over Chelsea means that Arsenal are now 14th in the Premier League table with 17 points from 15 games.

Speaking about Willian and Luiz’s absences, Arteta was quoted by Arsenal’s official website as saying after the match: “They had some symptoms and we have to be very cautious when that happens.

“The protocols say they have to stay away, they have to test negative, but we still have to be very careful not to pass that on to players until we are 100 percent sure they don’t.”

Willian and Luiz hope to recover in time to play for Arsenal in their next Premier League tie against Brighton on Tuesday.
