After testing positive for COVID-19, Manchester United’s new contract, Alex Telles, has lost
the last two matches as the huge-back will self-isolate until recovery.
For placement against Arsenal, reports from Flashywap states that the positive test was the
reason Alex lost their last two games and will not be available in the weekend derby match.
As United was placed to a goalless draw against Chelsea at the weekend, he was a surprise dismissal
from the team last week after a remarkable debut against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
The full-back was also unavailable on Wednesday night at the Solskjaer side-demolition of RB Leipzig.
The week after the UCL match, the causes were identified as Manchester United posted the
health condition of the full-back on their Twitter.
