Arsenal have been adamant since the first announcement that their player had followed protocols and shouldn’t in isolation.

Mikel Areta sounded confident about having Tierney available to face Manchester City tomorrow, 24 hours before the Glasgow derby it is still unclear whether or not Christie will be able to play in the most important domestic match of the season to date.
