Wenger provides injury update ahead of Manchester United clash

User Rating: / 1

Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger revealed in his press conference today that star right back Hector Bellerin has been ruled out of action for 4 weeks after suffering an injury late in the draw against Tottenham Hotspur last week.

Wenger shared that Bellerin was injured by a tackle in the last 10 seconds of the match against Spurs by a tackle from Danny Rose and unfortunately will miss not just the visit to Old Trafford but the rest of November.

Wenger did not share as yet whether Bellerin would miss 4 weeks more or 4 weeks in total. It would probably be safe to say it is more likely to be the latter.

When quizzed about the availability of Alexis Sanchez, Wenger added that the Chilean forward would have a test tomorrow to decide whether he would be ready to take on Manchester United.

Wenger said, "He played recovering from a hamstring injury. I understand he is keen to play for his country. I don't know how bad his injury was and we have to trust the medical department of Chile. I will see him tomorrow and we have to wait and see if he can be involved in our squad."

Sanchez scored twice for Chile against Uruguay on Tuesday, despite playing with a heavily bandaged thigh.

Meanwhile, Arsenal playmaker Santi Cazorla continues to be sidelined with injury and faces a long road back, having not even returned to training as yet.
