Do Arsenal really have a HUGE problem with Bellerin?

We are likely to find out more over the next few days on the subject of Hector Bellerin, after the talented young right back was forced to withdraw from the Spain under 21 national team last week when he picked up an ankle injury. The sports injury website the Spaniard is pencilled in to be fit again on December 3rd, whereas the team news on the Arsenal website does not even have him as part of our injury list.

I assume that is because the club’s medical team are still looking at Bellerin and trying to determine the extent of the problem and how long it will take to get him back on the pitch. Knowing our luck though, Arsene Wenger will probably have to do without him for the next four games at least, with the Premier League trip to West Ham at the start of December the prospective date of his return.

According to a report by Sky Sports this could spell real trouble for the Gunners, as the young defender has become one of the very best in his position in the Premier League and even the world, meaning that Arsenal will miss him badly while he is away.

The writer points to his determination and the way he seems to have great maturity and experience despite his tender years, as well as his blistering pace and technical ability, so with big games coming up against Man United in the league, Southampton in the cup and the pivotal Champions League clash with PSG, is the report right to suggest that this Bellerin injury could have a big and negative effect on our season?

It could do, although Carl Jenkinson will be hoping to prove that he can be decent cover and competition for the Spaniard. What do you guys think?

    I have a sneaky suspicion that Jenkinson will become a chink in our defensive armour until Bellerin recovers. I wouldn’t say Debuchy is any better either. Bellerin is one of our only players that we don’t have a solid back up for, but I hope I’m proved wrong. I will definitely get behind Jenkinson (the lad needs confidence if he’s going to succeed) and hope all the other fans will as well. COYG!
