Hector Bellerin Out For The Remainder Of The Season

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has been ruled out for the rest of the season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament against Chelsea on Saturday.

The 23-year-old was stretchered off in the 72nd minute after he went down clutching his knee in Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over Chelsea.

This was the Spaniard’s first start in five weeks after sustaining a calf injury against Southampton in December.

He is expected to be on the sidelines for about six to nine months.
