Man City duo tested positive with COVID-19


Manchester City defender Kyle Walker and strike Gabriel Jesus tested positive with Coronavirus and the duo will miss Premier League’s festive period.

The duo and two other staff members were diagnosed with the virus and they will quarantine according to local government’s self-isolation protocols.

Manchester City, who are sitting eighth in the Premier League with 23 points, will welcome Newcastle United on the Boxing Day and Pep Guardiola will need to tweak his selection as well as formation in the absence of Walker and Jesus.

The duo will be likely to miss home clash against the Magpies, trip to Everton and New Year’s clash against Chelsea.

Sergio Aguero, who has just returned to the squad, is a natural replacement for Brazilian Jesus while Joao Cancelo will start for right-back Kyle Walker.
