Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin is set to miss the Gunners’ clash with AC Milan on Thursday night with a knee injury.
The Spaniard did not travel with his team-mates to Italy today because of a knee complaint and it’s yet to be seen if he will be able to return on Sunday against Stoke City.
The Gunners take on AC Milan in the San Siro on Thursday for the first-leg of their last-16 Europa League tie and Bellerin had been expected to start.
Bellerin, 22, trained with the rest of his team-mates on Wednesday morning but he hasn’t traveled to Italy for the game, according to the Mirror.
The right-back has been carrying the problem for a number of weeks and club doctors fear he risks a long-term injury by persistently playing through the pain barrier.
With Bellerin injured, Calum Chambers could keep his place in the side from the defeat on the south coast.
