EPL: Ben White blow for Arsenal against dreaded Chelsea

Arsenal have suffered another blow with Ben White ruled out of their clash against Chelsea.

The £50m defender is understood to be ‘unwell’ and will not be in the Gunners squad at the Emirates.

It comes amid a huge Covid outbreak at the North London club, with at least four first-team squad members being struck down, according to The Sun.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette both missed out in their opening day defeat at Brentford.

Willian also tested positive for the virus, amid a disastrous start to the season for Mikel Arteta.

White was expected to start against the Blues today, according to The Athletic.

The 23-year-old was set to face off against Romelu Lukaku, who rejoined Chelsea for £100m.

But Arteta is without one of his key players, in what has been a turbulent few weeks for his side.

The England centre-back played the full 90-minutes of their 2-0 loss at the Bees last Friday.
