Even though their chances of contracting the virus are low, the Gunners are following government guidelines to ensure safety.

It is due to the above that players will be unavailable for the Wednesday night EPL fixture.

The news comes hours after several Europa League matches were set to be played behind closed doors.

The first match to be affected was that of Manchester United which will see no fan allowed into the stadium.

This follows several precautionary measures deployed by the government to curb the spread of the virus.

Also affected is the return Champions League clash between Chelsea and Bayern Munich.
