It is well known that the Gunners are suffering from a host of injuries within the defensive department. So, it was a little bit of good news for the fans to get a positive update from one of the players to have been injured recently.
Hector Bellerin who injured his ligament in the match against Chelsea took to social media to offer an update that is sure to leave a smile on the faces of many fans.
On Twitter, he posted a photo from his hospital bed and the caption that was alongside the photo read:
“Yes Doc? I can get out of hospital yeah? Saaaafe. Road to recovery begins.”
He recently had surgery done so this update is certainly a bit of good news. It is important that the road to recovery begins as soon as possible for the defender.
The defender is one of the most important members of the squad and the team really suffers in his absence. Bellerin is also crucial to the way in which manager Unai Emery likes his team to play so that makes his absence hurt the club that much more.
Without him at right-back, the options that the Gunners have are not going to inspire much confidence. The candidates are Stephan Lichtsteiner, Carl Jenkinson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
None of these players possess the qualities that Bellerin has and that affects the rhythm of the whole team. The build-up becomes a little stunted and there is a real stop-start nature to the way Arsenal play which is not what they will want to do.
Bellerin will hope that he can come into the team sooner rather than later and the surgery being a success is a step in the right direction. If the Gunners are going to achieve any sort of progress, it is necessary for people like the Spaniard to be fit and firing.
