Liverpool have been handed a huge injury boost for Saturday’s match against Arsenal with Unai Emery stating that the Gunners could be without Hector Bellerin for the clash, according to the official Arsenal website.
Bellerin was withdrawn at half-time during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace yesterday, with Emery citing ‘muscular pains’ as the reason following the game, while confirming he is unsure if he’ll be available for the weekend.
Bellerin has been in fine form this season, especially in an attacking sense and him missing out would certainly come as a huge blow to the North London outfit.
If the Spaniard isn’t fit, Emery will likely turn to Stephan Lichtsteiner to fill his place at right-back; at 34 years of age and certainly not the quickest, you’d expect him to have a torrid time dealing with Mane defensively.
Arsenal’s loss will undoubtedly be Liverpool’s gain.
