Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy is in self-isolation as a precaution after a family member was tested for coronavirus.

City are scheduled to play Burnley in the Premier League at Etihad Stadium on Saturday, but league matches against Arsenal on Wednesday and Champions League last-16 second leg against Real Madrid on March 17 have already been postponed due to coronavirus concerns.

“The club is aware that a family member of a senior men’s team player is in hospital with symptoms of a respiratory illness,” a club statement read.
