On October 17, Beijing time, "The Guardian" reporter Nick Ames published an article stating that Arsenal believes that the team's left-back Tierney can play in Arsenal's game against Manchester City.
Tierney's teammate Stuart Armstrong on the Scottish team had previously tested positive for the new crown nucleic acid.
Arsenal will continue to wait. They will wait until Friday night local time in the UK to finally wait for the news that Tierney can participate in the game against Manchester City. The players themselves and the club are currently confident that they believe that players can participate in the game against Manchester City.
It was originally reported that Tierney needed to undergo a 14-day quarantine, but Arsenal currently believes that this quarantine period can be shortened. Earlier Arteta had stated that if Tierney could not go to the Etihad Stadium, then he would be "extremely disappointed."
Tierney was previously required to be quarantined. The quarantine period began last Tuesday because Tierney and Stuart Armstrong have had close contact. After nucleic acid testing, Tierney's test result was negative. Arsenal said that in fact Tierney has always maintained a social distance with Armstrong, and the Gunners hope Tierney can be approved to return to England. By Friday, the situation had changed and Tierney was considered to have a greater chance to participate in the Gunners' dialogue with Manchester City.
In order to return to Arsenal, Tierney will do a more in-depth new crown virus test. But there is a new problem. Tierney has not conducted system training for about 10 days, and his condition is also a problem.
