Bellerin picks up hamstring problem

23

Hector Bellerin is likely to miss tomorrow’s game with Frankfurt after picking up a hamstring injury.

At this point, the club’s medical team say the player has a ‘tight’ hamstring, so at least it’s not a pull or a tear.

That said, having worked his way back from a long-term spell on the sidelines after ACL surgery, the news will come as a blow to the right-back.

Calum Chambers and Ainsley Maitland-Niles can offer cover.

Sead Kolasinac and Dani Ceballos are also out with hamstring problems. Like Bellerin, it’s a tight one for the Bosnian who’ll likely miss out tomorrow.

Our on loan Spanish midfielder isn’t due to return until mid-December; that’s another six weeks away.

‘Our on loan Spanish midfielder isn’t due to return until mid-December; that’s another six weeks away.’ – either it’s 2 weeks away from a mid Dec come back or it is 6 weeks away from a mid-January come back

Mid-December is three weeks away, or are we working to the Arsenal Injuryian Calendar now?

Waiting patiently for the #EmeryOut story…get well soon Hector. May your recovery be as speedy as your runs down the wing.

My guess is they want the replacement in the bag before they announce. Shouldn’t though. Freddie can do it for a week or two.

I check this page every 2 hours to see if there a story like “EMERY IS GONE”. Instead, it’s our Hector who’s injured. Get well quickly boy.

Sigh.. I was just beginning to enjoy seeing his raids down the flank again.
Hopefully he’s back soon!

more signs that Emery doesn’t belong at the club. When we’re not playing our best the players who could offer more are getting injured

Can’t say I’m disappointed. Since returning from injury, his performances have been woeful.

Emery had everybody else playing woefully before his comeback. Is it any wonder he’s not been performing the way he used to. I doubt if he’s been allowed to.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles – I forgot about him.

This is further complication we really don’t need.

I mentioned last match Tierney had more output on his flank than Bellerin. Perhaps it was because Hector wasn’t 100%

We have plenty of natural pace on either flank with Tierney/Kolasinac and Auba/Martinelli on left flank, Pepe and Bellerin (not to mention Nelson) on the right.

BUT Unai has not found a solution to use us to our strengths.

Our transitions (and now without Granit) have been too slow. Too many touches and passes to get to our players out wide.

We are unprepared to break out when defending set pieces as well where we should really be like a coiled spring seeing each scenario in defense as an opportunity to spring out and attack on the counter with pace.

Unai I feel wants to play the Pepe way (some sort of continental possession style) but we lack sufficiently the technical players to do this (again why Arteta would also be a poor choice)

This whole play out from the back enforcement does not sit comfortably with this team and it has become dogmatic so much so other teams easily predict what we are attempting to do. It is so utterly risky what we are doing.

Even clearances/headers instead of going wide end up just in front of the penalty box for no explicable reason.

The style Emery is trying to use does not suit this team and we are not using our best assets out wide as efficiently as we should be.
