Arsenal beat Millwall in their friendly 4-1 with goals from Alexandre Lacazette, Nicolas Pepe, Folarin Balogun and Calum Chambers.
One of the possible alternatives was to schedule some behind-closed-doors friendly games during the period the Florida Cup matches were supposed to take place.
The account Arsenal Fixture News, which posts information about all the club’s upcoming matches, claimed that the Gunners would indeed face Millwall today.
It has not been revealed which members of the ‘travelling party’ for Florida had tested positive but a number of images of training have been posted online showing the players who are still at London Colney. These included new man Sambi Lokonga who could have made his unofficial debut in the friendly.
Millwall might have fielded Arsenal loanee Daniel Ballard who joined the club on a temporary deal ahead of the new season. Ballard helped Blackpool win promotion in the League 1 play-off final.
