Bellerin out for up to 9 months

LONDON

Jan 23, 2019-

Arsenal announced on Tuesday that defender Hector Bellerin will be out of action for up to nine months after rupturing knee ligaments in his team’s win against Chelsea. Bellerin, 23, went down unchallenged during the second half of Arsenal’s 2-0 victory at the Emirates on Saturday and was carried off on a stretcher. The 23-year-old was making his first start since mid-December, having overcome a calf problem, but will now miss the remainder of the season, and possibly the start of the 2019-20 campaign. Arsenal are fifth in the Premier League, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea. (AFP)
