Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding are set to miss the start of the 2019/2020 season according to reports on football.london.
Bellerin and Holding are both nursing ACL knee injuries and were expected back for the start of the season but both have now been ruled out.
Bellerin seems to be the worst of the pair, as there is a slim chance that Holding could be back in training before the season opener in August where we travel to Newcastle to kick things off.
Since losing the Europa League final in May against Chelsea, the atmosphere around the Arsenal internet community has been dour, with news that we can’t afford any new players and players not wanting to come to us. Add to this the (made up) news that Emery only has a paltry £40m transfer warchest to play with as we try to claw our way back in to the Champions League.
This depressing mood has been temporarily been lifted with the ‘leaked’ kit launch video, which you can see here. It has a very retro vibe and the new kits look soooooo good, a far cry away from the awful Puma kits we’ve been subjected to in recent times, let’s hope the Adidas kit can somehow take us back to the success we earned last time we sported the three stripes.
Back to our mini-injury crisis, and it has also been reported that Leno has a thumb/wrist injury and Mavrapanos is still getting back to fitness after picking up a knock against Burnley in the last game of the league season.
