Arsenal injury news – Bellerin muscle fear, Lucas Perez boost

Everyone at Arsenal will be hoping that the late knock picked up by the young Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin in the game between the Spain under 21s and San Marino, which the Spanish comfortably won by 3-0, will not turn out to be a problem that will keep him out of action for any length of time.

As reported by the Spanish sports paper AS, the Arsenal defender had to receive treatment for a suspected muscle problem in the dying minutes of the match. Hopefully he will be fine because the Spaniard has become a key player for the Gunners and we need him to be fit for the visit of Swansea City next weekend.

Arsene Wenger has had some good news on the injury front this week though, with Metro reporting that our Spanish striker Lucas Perez, the summer transfer capture from Deportivo La Coruna, is back in training after picking up a knee injury that kept him out for the Arsenal squad for the win over Burnley.

That could be important as well, with Alexis Sanchez due back late from South America where he is on international duty with Chile. With Olivier Giroud injured or out of favour the best option for Wenger if he does want to rest the Chilean is surely Lucas, especially after he got off the mark with a double in the EFL cup win over Nottingham Forest.

Let’s hope Bellerin comes back fit and well and that Arsenal have no more injury scares in the next week or so.



  1. Bellerin is one of my favorite players at the back. The guy is a threat going forward and a good defensive player at the back, i really hope this is just nothing.

  2. Bellerin – has less adequate cover than probably any other player

    Debuchy has been shocking the few times he’s graced our pitch (amazed he is still with us)-

    Ozil is the only other player I don’t think we have good enough cover for

  3. Off topic I’ve just watched premier league world – WENGER
    Before this of late I’ve been a wenger out, but i must say i was wrong.
    He came across as honest loyal and knowledgable man. I hope he stays for at least two more years.

    1. Hahaha ? Hey John, is there any room on that bandwagon for me?… I promise not to fart ?? And in return I will save a place for you on the Wenger out wagon… Just incase the wheels fall off. ??

    2. In my opinion he is as thoughtful, considerate and loyal a manager the modern era has witnessed. It is hard to blame him for this, but there are a few instances being a bit more cut throat could have benefited us.

    3. you’ll be back. Also have to remember things are going our way at the moment. If seasons starts going south again, people suddenly gain their memories of the past decade back. I’m sure Wenger’s a nice guy, and he obviously cares for the club, but… one of highest paid managers, crazy ticket prices, for odd FA Cup? Not good enough, not ambitious enough for a club like Arsenal. I get thumbed down for this comment now, get thumbed up around Feb/March, always happens.

    4. yeah, I have been on the fence for the last year with Wenger but after watching the aniversary docs it reminded how much of great manager he is. He’s intelligent, thoughtful, dedicated, loyal, and honest. Evrything the game used to be about and everything the modern game is lacking. Too many people with too much money and not enough sense. Blatter, Ibramovich, Usmanov. If football wants to retain any dignity and remain a force of good in a troubled world then it needs to keep hold of people like Wenger.
