Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette missed Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat at Brentford after returning positive coronavirus tests, the club have confirmed.

Aubameyang could be available for Arsenal’s Premier League game against Chelsea on Sunday, live on Sky Sports, after a bout of coronavirus saw the striker miss the Gunners’ opening Premier League defeat.

The captain has tested negative, will return to training, and be assessed prior to Sunday’s match at the Emirates Stadium.

Meanwhile, the club have said Lacazette is still recovering, and will not be at Mikel Arteta’s disposal for their clash with the Blues.

Willian has also returned a positive test and his recovery is being monitored ahead of Sunday, while back-up goalkeeper Alex Runnarson is also currently self-isolating after catching the virus.

Arsenal were without a number of other key players for the defeat at Brentford.

Midfielder Thomas Partey has been out with an ankle problem since his friendly with Chelsea on August 1, but he is working hard with the medical team and is aiming to be back in training by the end of the month.

Eddie Nketiah has also been out since that Chelsea match, but the striker is expected to return to training early next month.

Gabriel, who sustained an injury to his right knee while with the Brazil Olympic squad, is also progressing well and aiming to be back in training before the end of August.
