Mikel Arteta has confirmed Alexandre Lacazette is a doubt for Arsenal’s clashes with Chelsea and Manchester United next week.

Lacazette missed training this week as he felt ill and he was then left out of the squad for the defeat to Southampton after testing positive for Covid-19.

The striker could now miss two more games for Arsenal, as they travel to Chelsea on Wednesday and then host Manchester United in the Saturday lunchtime kick-off.

The news is a blow to Arsenal, who have already been hit by injuries to Kieran Tierney, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Thomas Partey.

Lacazette has struggled for form recently, but he is a key figure in the Arsenal dressing room and has become captain following the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Barcelona.

“It will depend whether he is negative and whether he is feeling better and his symptoms are gone, and he’s available to play,” said Arteta.
