Arteta was forced into self-isolation after he contracted the coronavirus, prompting Arsenal to quickly shut down their London Colney training ground.

The COVID-19 outbreak in football also lead to the Premier League suspending all matches until at least April 4, creating much uncertainty surrounding the remainder of the season.

Torreira is among the Arsenal players self-isolating.
