On 31 December, goalkeeper Ederson announced on social media that he is self-isolating amid the recent coronavirus outbreak in the Manchester City squad, leaving his involvement in Sunday's Premier League match against Chelsea in doubt.

Club-mates Kyle Walker and Gabriel Jesus have tested positive for covid-19, as have three other, unnamed City players and two members of staff.
