Mane the 2nd Liverpool player this week to contract virus

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has become the second player to test positive this week for the coronavirus at the English Premier League champions.

Mane has “displayed minor symptoms of the virus but feels in good health overall,” the club said on Friday.

Mane, who scored in a 3-1 victory over Arsenal on Monday, is self-isolating and will miss Sunday’s game against Aston Villa.

Midfielder Thiago Alcantara is also out of the game after contracting COVID-19.
