Chelsea coach, Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that winger Christian Pulisic has tested positive for Covid-19 and is now self-isolating.Pulisic will now miss Chelsea’s Premier League London derby against Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday, August 22.His diagnosis comes a week after Ruben Loftus-Cheek contracted Covid-19, while Arsenal have also been dealing with their own outbreak after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Willian and Alex Runnarson were all affected.Thomas Tuchel confirmed: “Christian has unfortunately had a positive test and needs to follow the protocols. He’s not been training and is not available for the game.”The German also warned his players to beware a backlash from Arsenal as they battle their own Covid situation and look to bounce back from their opening day defeat to Brentford.“I don’t know what their team will be. It’s a difficult one to predict. For me the situation, when I put myself into their shoes, is that they can play the underdog role with the complications they had with Covid and that they lost their first match. “In pre-season, we saw the energy the stadium could produce. They had a bit of a rough start and from their perspective, it can be a help that a big rival from within the city arrives. “It can create a situation where they stick together and try to win their crowd over with a strong performance. So we should be prepared for the best Arsenal possible. They have a strong coach, strong team, strong signings, so we should prepare for the best Arsenal possible.”The post Chelsea playmaker, Christian Pulisic tests positive for Covid-19; to miss Arsenal game on Sunday appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
