Ilkay Gundogan has become the third Manchester City player to test positive for COVID-19 but Monday night's Premier League clash with Wolves will still go ahead. 

Riyad Mahrez and Aymeric Laporte have also contracted the virus in recent weeks, with the latter of that duo also ruled out of City's league opener. 

Gundogan's positive test means he will play no part against Wolves, while he'll also miss the League Cup game against Bournemouth on Thursday and meeting with Leicester City next Sunday.
