Hector Bellerin has reassured fans that he is on the mend after suffering a concussion in Arsenal’s defeat to Chelsea on Saturday.
The young Spaniard jumped with compatriot Marcos Alonso as the Chelsea man broke the deadlock at Stamford Bridge, with Bellerin’s head clashing with his counterpart’s upper-arm.
After receiving medical attention for several minutes, Bellerin was eventually replaced by Gabriel Paulista and Arsenal went on to lose 3-1.
But supporters can take solace in Bellerin coming away from the incident without any lasting damage, with Arsene Wenger revealing in his post-match media conference that concussion was the diagnosis.
