Aymeric Laporte and Riyad Mahrez have tested positive for coronavirus and are both self-isolating as Manchester City prepare for their opening game of the new season against Wolves.

Laporte, who is Pep Guardiola’s defensive linchpin, and forward Mahrez could be available as the trip to Moulineux is on 21 August, in a fortnight’s time – the maximum period for quarantine, according to government rules. As it is unclear when each player began quarantine and thus when they can resume training with the manager’s squad whether he will select them may be in doubt.
