Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta to deal with Willians unauthorised Dubai trip internally

But Arteta, whose side travel to face Leeds on Sunday, said there was nothing untoward in the pair having a disagreement.

Luiz and Ceballos were not part of the Brazil and Spain squads and remained in London where they have continued to train.

After the story broke on Thursday night, Ceballos took to Twitter to deny the claims - simply retweeting the article below the word: "FAKE".

If Ceballos was involved in a coming together, it wouldn't be the first time this season that he has upset one of his teammates.

That means Arteta could be forced to recall Granit Xhaka, who was an unused substitue in the last two Premier League games, with Dani Ceballos likely to partner him.

Thankfully, recovery rates remain high, around 80 per cent nationwide while the newest cases are still considered ill. Patty Hajdu, the federal health minister, said, "This wave is undeniably harder".

However, the United Arab Emirates is not on the UK's quarantine list and the 32-year-old Brazilian has been able to return to training this week.

"We had a conversation and I explained what I was expecting", added Arteta.

"From a tactical point of view, if you watch Arsenal closely they show things that I have never seen in any other team". Mohamed Elneny and Sead Kolasinac tested positive for COVID-19, several players were used by their countries more than the Gunners would have liked, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang slept on the floor of an airport and Willian courted controversy with a trip to Dubai despite the national lockdown.

This is due to an injury he picked up during Arsenal's 3-0 loss to Aston Villa on November 8.
