West Ham United manager David Moyes goes into self-isolation having had contact with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta last weekend.

West Ham United manager David Moyes has put himself in self-isolation as a result of Mikel Arteta testing positive for coronavirus.

Last weekend, the Hammers and Arsenal squared off in a Premier League game at the Emirates Stadium, with Moyes and his opposite number shaking hands before and after the contest.

On Thursday evening, five days after the fixture in North London, it was revealed that Arteta had tested positive for coronavirus, which has subsequently led to the Spaniard, his squad and backroom staff putting themselves into isolation.

Adhering to government health guidelines, Moyes has taken the precautionary measure of doing the same for an unspecified amount of time.

As it stands, the Premier League will not get back underway until April 4, although that may change in the coming weeks.
