Manchester City v Arsenal is called OFF just hours before the game with ‘a number of Gunners players’ self-isolating after meeting with Olympiacos’ owner days before he revealed he had coronavirus

The Premier League have postponed Wednesday’s match between Manchester City and Arsenal after Nottingham Forest and Olympiacos owner Evangelos Marinakis tested positive for coronavirus two weeks after watching his Greek team at the Emirates Stadium.

The 52-year-old, who spends his time between Nottingham and Greece, was at Arsenal’s stadium to watch his team play in their victorious Europa League last-32 tie on February 27.

But Marinakis penned a statement on Instagram on Tuesday confirming that he has contracted the coronavirus, just 12 days after attending the match in north London.
