Hector Bellerin has a “small chance” of regaining fitness for Arsenal’s derby clash with Tottenham at the weekend, Arsene Wenger says.

Wenger could only look on in horror as a backline hampered by injuries was torn apart by Bayern Munich on Wednesday, the Premier League side going down 5-1 at the Allianz Arena.

Bellerin – who has emerged as a first-team regular over the past year at Arsenal – was absent from the trip to Germany due to a groin injury.

And, having seen Mathieu Debuchy struggle badly against Pep Guardiola’s side, Wenger is pessimistic over Bellerin’s chances of staking a claim ahead of Spurs’ visit to the Emirates Stadium.

“I don’t think Bellerin will be available for Sunday but there is a small chance,” Wenger said.

“From tonight we don’t have any new injuries.”

Though Bellerin is unlikely to feature, Laurent Koscielny could come back against Spurs having been benched at Bayern.
