Arsenal will assess Hector Bellerin on Sunday after the defender suffered a knee injury in the win over Chelsea .

The right-back left the field on a stretcher after picking up the problem in the 72nd minute of the 2-0 victory over the Blues at the Emirates.


Boss Unai Emery is keeping his fingers crossed that the injury to the Spaniard is not serious.

He said after the game: "We have to wait until tomorrow, it’s his knee. The first prediction is it can be an important injury.

"I hope not, but first impressions are not positive."
Emery has ruled out bringing in a replacement, even if scans show Bellerin will be a long-term absentee.
He added: "We have Ainsley, playing with good 'pieces'. He played well today and can help us playing at right-back or right winger.

"Also Lichsteiner is another player who can play there. We have the players. I don't forget Jenkinson who has played some matches and can be used if we need him."
