"Everyone at the club wishes Ilkay a speedy recovery," Manchester City said in a statement.

On Monday, the Premier League said that in the week leading up to Sunday, 20 September, 1,574 players and club staff were tested for coronavirus and, of these, there were three new positive cases.

City winger Riyad Mahrez and defender Aymeric Laporte previously tested positive for Covid-19 but are now back in training.
