It was a little unfortunate that the winning streak of the Gunners had to come to an end against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
After that, there was a lot to talk about regarding the performance of the Arsenal players. One of them, Hector Bellerin had to come off at halftime due to an injury.
When manager Unai Emery was asked what the situation was regarding the defender, he offered an update.
Speaking to the official website, this is what Emery had to say about Bellerin:
“Yes, he’s injured,” said Unai Emery. “I hope it’s not a big injury, but he had muscular pains.
“I don’t know [whether he’s a doubt for the Liverpool game next Saturday].”
If the Spaniard is unable to be fit in time for the match against Liverpool, it will be a real loss for the Gunners as he has been one of the most important members of the team this season.
His pace and ability to bomb up and down the right flank has been a real asset to the way that Arsenal have been playing and to add to that, he is one of the highest ranked players this season when it comes to assists in the Premier League.
Despite the end of the winning streak, there is a lot of positives that the Gunners should be thinking about now. And the more they focus on the matches that are coming up, they can get their mind off the draw at Palace.
Over the coming few weeks, Arsenal are going to have a really tough time and the way they navigate this will show their mettle as a team and be an indicator of where the team is.
And to overcome a period such as this, it is essential that players such as Bellerin stay fit as they are a vital cog in the team. Fans will be hoping that the defender can get fit in time for the match against Liverpool as that will give their chances a real boost.
