rsenal faces a selection headache in defense after all four right-backs test positive for Covid-19.

Calum Chambers was already out for their Boxing Day game against Norwich after testing positive earlier this week.

And Arsenal have confirmed that Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Cedric and Takehiro Tomiyasu also have coronavirus.

This means Arsenal made it to Carrow Road without their four right-back options, with Ben White starting there instead.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has also been excluded from the squad for the fifth consecutive game as his exile continues.

The striker was sacked and stripped of his captain’s rank following his latest disciplinary offense, which involved a late return from a sanctioned trip abroad.

Aubameyang is currently training on his own and his future is uncertain ahead of the January transfer window.

There was good news for Arsenal, however, as Albert Sambi Lokonga and Pablo Mari were back in the Norwich squad after suffering Covid-19 earlier this month.
