Liverpool star Mo Salah and Arsenal's Mohamed Elneny to fly home together from Egypt after positive coronavirus tests

LIVERPOOL star Mohamed Salah and Arsenal's Mohamed Elneny will fly home together from Egypt after both tested positive for coronavirus.

Both players are self-isolating and will miss their club's weekend games after being two of 16 Premier League players to catch Covid during the international break.

The duo will be tested on arrival in the UK and will have to undergo a 10-day quarantine period as stated by the government's coronavirus rules.

Salah will miss Liverpool's clash with Leicester at Anfield, one of a number of absentees for the Reds.

Elneny will have to sit out Arsenal's trip to Leeds on Sunday.

In a statement on Thursday, the Egyptian FA said: "The Egyptian Federation has been in constant contact and coordination with the two clubs since each of them was infected with coronavirus."

Salah tested positive a week ago and was forced to sit out both games against Tongo.

He had attended his brother Nasr's wedding days before he had tested positive.

The 28-year-old then returned another test confirming he still had it a few days later.

He is believed to not be suffering any symptoms.

Meanwhile, Elneny's agent announced he tested positive for the virus earlier this week.

The two joined a number of players who have caught Covid during the international period.

They include Uruguayan stars Luis Suarez and goalkeeper Rodrigo Munoz and Ireland players Matt Doherty and James McClean.
