Hector Bellerin was left in agony after falling awkwardly under no pressure…


It is being reported that Arsenal are fearing the worst regarding Hector Bellerin’s knee injury with early indications points towards a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament injury, the Daily Mail reports.

Bellerin went down in agony without contact as he attempted to close down a few Chelsea players and it immediately became apparent that he’d done some serious damage.

The Spaniard had only just returned to the starting XI following five weeks out with a calf injury, and his importance was apparent in that blistering first-half.

Bellerin has become one of the most improved players under Emery with the 23-year-old showing the form which earned him rave reviews when he broke into the Arsenal squad.

According to Sami Mokbel, Bellerin will undergo an MRI scan on Sunday to determine the full extent of the injury and to rule out any further damage to the meniscus.

Confirmation of a ruptured knee ligament will see the former Barcelona starlet undergo surgery and miss six-nine months, a rehabilitation he can share with fellow defender Rob Holding.

That’s now two of our best defenders out with long-term injuries; defenders Emery could’ve built the team around.

While money is scarce for the January window, one would be surprised if we didn’t add a right-back in the summer.
