Ilkay Gundogan Manchester City 2019-20

Ilkay Gundogan has become the third Manchester City player to test positive for Covid-19 ahead of their Premier League opener against Wolves.

City also confirmed positive tests for Riyad Mahrez and Aymeric Laporte earlier this month, with Pep Guardiola now facing a selection dilemma upon the Blues' return to domestic action.

The Spanish head coach revealed in his pre-match press conference that Mahrez will be available for the trip to Wolves after a 10-day isolation period, but Laporte will be left out alongside Gundogan having only just returned to full training.

City have delivered an update on Gundgoan's condition via their official website, which reads: "Manchester City FC can confirm that Ilkay Gundogan has tested positive for COVID-19.

"Ilkay is now observing a 10-day period of self-isolation in accordance with Premier League and UK Government protocol on quarantine.

"Everyone at the Club wishes Ilkay a speedy recovery."
