Arsenal face a selection headache in defence after all four of their right-backs tested positive for Covid-19.

Calum Chambers was already missing for their Boxing Day game against Norwich after testing positive earlier this week.

And Arsenal have confirmed Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Cedric and Takehiro Tomiyasu have coronavirus too.

It means Arsenal travelled to Carrow Road without their four right-back options, with Ben White starting there instead.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was also left out of the squad too for the fifth game in a row as his exile continues.

The forward was dropped and stripped of the captaincy following his latest disciplinary breach, which involved returning late from a sanctioned trip abroad.

Aubameyang is currently training on his own and his future is uncertain ahead of the January transfer window.

There was good news for Arsenal, though, as Albert Sambi Lokonga and Pablo Mari were back in the squad for Norwich after having Covid-19 earlier this month.
