Many of Arsenal’s first team are seeing out a period of self-isolation at home after boss Mikel Arteta tested positive.

The Gunners’ Hertfordshire HQ is not due to open its doors again until March 24 in an effort to contain the spread of the disease.

Many highly-paid superstars have their own purpose-built fitness centres built into their lavish homes.

But for those that do not, Arsenal have gone to extraordinary lengths. And it is not just a couple of dumb-bells or tins of beans for rudimentary weight training we are talking about.

Arsenal insiders say that complex kit, like bench pressing machines and treadmills, has been delivered to the stars.

Gunners medics and physios are also in constant touch with players that are doing DIY training at home or those who are injured and undergoing rest and rehab.

Calum Chambers is a long-term crock working hard to overcome a cruciate ligament injury in December.

Having been apart from the squad for so long he is not undergoing self-isolation but is also making the best of things with the remote guidance.

Across London at Chelsea they too are defying the pandemic and doing their best to keep ticking over.

Their Surrey HQ has undergone an extensive deep clean since Callum Hudson-Odoi tested positive last Thursday.

The winger seems to be recovering well after posting a picture of himself on an exercise bike yesterday.

Chelsea’s predicament is slightly different to Arsenal’s because their training ground is fully operational for those who were not in contact with him.

Injured players like N’Golo Kante, Tammy Abraham. Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Marco van Ginkel are free to turn up.

West Ham hope to be back in training within days after boss David Moyes put himself in isolation having shaken hands with Arteta when the teams played on March 7.
