The spike in PL players testing positive is particularly worrying to Arteta, given they were only away from their respective club’s structured environment for a short period between the end of the 2019-20 season and the start of preseason. Paul Pogba is the highest-profile individual with a confirmed case of COVID-19, but he’s not the only one. According to a report, at least four Chelsea players are thought to have contracted the virus during their rest period with a number of other players currently undergoing periods of quarantine rather than joining their teammates in training. Arteta himself was one of the first high-profile cases connected to the PL back in March, prior to the league shutting down for three months. Asked on Friday, ahead of Saturday’s FA Community Shield against Liverpool, whether or not the uncertainty makes his job more difficult, and whether or not that uncertainty means the season walks a very fine line between being possible and impossible, Arteta explained why that is exactly the case — quotes from the Guardian:Advertisementlast_img read more
