Arsenal’s first-team squad arrived at London Colney today in small groups for individual training work, though attendance was not compulsory.
Social distancing measures were maintained, with no more than five players allowed on each of the complex’s 10 pitches at once and sessions lasting no more than an hour. Players arrived and departed in training kit.
A small group of staff were in attendance, although it was unclear if manager Mikel Arteta, who tested positive for the virus last month, was present today.
The club’s decision came after they were forced to remind players of social distancing guidelines after Nicolas Pepe, David Luiz and Granit Xhaka were caught training in public last week.
