SunSport can exclusively reveal Arsenal are investigating a possible breach of Covid regulations by captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The striker appeared to break lockdown rules to get a new tattoo.

He was pictured showing off the inking on the Instagram account of Spanish tattoo artist Alejandro Nicolas Bernal.

And the footage was posted just days after Aubameyang had been given time off by the club to visit his ill mother in France.

Under UK Government regulations, all mobile and static tattoo parlours must remain closed during the coronavirus pandemic.

But neither Aubameyang nor Barcelona-based Bernal were wearing a mask during the session to decorate the player’s hand.

Meanwhile, Chelsea moved up to fourth with a 2-0 win against Newcastle last night.

Timo Werner ended his 14-game drought with a close-range finish against the Toon.

Olivier Giroud also netted but Thomas Tuchel will be sweating over the fitness of Tammy Abraham, who was forced off early on with an ankle injury.

West Ham have also joined Chelsea level on points after an impressive 3-0 win over Sheffield United, leaving champs Liverpool in SIXTH.

Finally, Man Utd are set to be without Paul Pogba for another fortnight due to a persistent thigh injury.

According to the Mail, no timeframe has been placed on Pogba’s eventual return to the side.

But it is said that he will sit out another two weeks of United’s hectic fixture schedule.

That means he would miss games against Real Sociedad and Newcastle before returning to face Chelsea at the end of the month.
