Hector Bellerin was stretchered off in the 72nd minute of Arsenal’s victorious match against Chelsea on Saturday at the Emirates Stadium.

He had suffered a knee injury, and everyone feared the worse.

There is no relief yet for fans and teammates of the 23-year-old right-back.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery says Hector Bellerin's injury is "not positive on first impression".

"The prediction is it could be an important injury," said Emery.

Bellerin was making his first start in five weeks after picking up a calf injury against Southampton in December.

The Spain international was influential in Arsenal's first goal in the derby victory over Chelsea, passing the ball to Alexandre Lacazette for the opening goal.

Along with Laurent Koscielny, Bellerin also made more interceptions and blocks than any other Arsenal player, before being replaced by Mohamed Elneny in the second half.
