Manchester City defender Eric Garcia and a employees member have examined positive for COVID-19, the Premier League membership mentioned on Sunday.
“Both personnel will now observe a period of self-isolation in accordance with Premier League and UK Government protocol on quarantine,” City mentioned in an announcement right here.
On Friday, City supervisor Pep Guardiola mentioned 5 first-team gamers had examined positive for the novel coronavirus and wouldn’t be concerned of their sport at Chelsea, scheduled for 1630 GMT on Sunday.
The membership mentioned final week that striker Gabriel Jesus and defender Kyle Walker had examined positive, although Guardiola didn’t identify the opposite three contaminated gamers.
A surge in infections at City amongst gamers and employees pressured the membership to lodge a request with the league to postpone Monday’s sport at Everton.
City are eighth within the league desk with 26 factors after 14 video games.
