Arsenal star remains confident despite double injury blow at the weekend

Arsenal star Hector Bellerin has come out to play down speculation that the squad is in crisis following injuries to both Alexis Sanchez and Laurent Koscielny, Express reports.

The 20-year-old saw both of his teammates taken off before the final whistle in the 1-1 draw against Norwich City yesterday.

Koscielny picked up a hip injury after only 11 minutes while Sanchez managed to feature for about an hour before suffering a hamstring problem.

The Gunners have been struggling with a number of injuries concerns in recent months as the pair now joins Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta, Francis Coquelin, Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck, Jack Wilshere, and Tomas Rosicky on the sidelines.

Bellerin admitted that despite the high number of unavailable players, the squad still has adequate cover in the form of youth players.

“I have said it before, there is great depth in the team,” he said.

“There are a lot of young players in the team waiting to come through, and we have a lot of quality training with us every day.

“They are ready to step up so obviously every single player on the bench can do the same job as every single player in the starting XI. We don’t need to worry about [the injuries to Alexis and Koscielny].“

Manager Arsene Wenger has now seen his side drop four points after drawing two and winning only one of their previous three Premier League matches.
