In a major blow to Arsenal, Hector Bellerin set to miss a lengthy spell on the sidelines after he pulled out of the Spain’s U-21 with an ankle injury.
Bellerin could be out for the entire November and that means he could be unavailable when The Gunners will travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United. He will also miss Arsenal’s last group stage game against Paris Saint-German although they have already qualified for the next stage.
Bellerín’s injury has opened a ray of hope for Carl Jenkinson and Mathieu Debuchy, though, as they are the only two proper right backs currently in the Arsenal squad.
Bellerin suffered a tackle by Tottenham Hotspur left back Danny Rose but hoped that the injury would be very minor. But according to reports, the Spanish right-back who recently signed a new lucrative contract has damaged his ligament.
Bellerín’s injury piles more misery on Arsène Wenger as Alexis Sanchez has been already ruled out for six weeks after suffering a muscle tear in Chile’s training camp.
