Kieran Tierney has been left frustrated after being instructed to self-isolate for fourteen days after coming into contact with Scotland teammate Stuart Armstrong, who has tested positive for COVID-19.
But Tierney has denied coming into contact with Armstrong and has tested negative for the coronavirus.
"I'm so disappointed and frustrated to be in this situation," Tierney said.
"I have adhered to all regulations and made sure I was socially distancing from my team-mates in the hotel. I've also tested negative. I know Arsenal and the SFA [Scottish Football Association] are now in discussions with the Scottish authorities to gain a further understanding."
The Gunners added that they are seeking 'further advice and clarification' over the incident, but they remain confident Tierney will be able to face City on October 17.
The club stated: "Our medical team have confirmed that Kieran was socially distant at all times from the player who tested positive and has broken no rules regarding Covid-19 protocols. We are currently seeking further advice and clarification of the details."
