Arsenal hope Kieran Tierney can end isolation early to face Manchester City | Soccer


Mikel Arteta will be hopeful Kieran Tierney will be cleared to face Manchester City on Saturday even though the defender is in isolation after a Covid-19 scare in the Scottish squad.Tierney was asked to quarantine himself for 14 days last Tuesday after his team-mate Stuart Armstrong tested positive for coronavirus in routine UEFA testing while on international duty in Glasgow. Arsenal and Tierney have expressed frustration with the move, pointing out that he is socially estranged from Armstrong despite being identified as a close contact, and intensive efforts continue to ensure he is available for selection to the Etihad.
