Arsenal failed to register a victory in their third consecutive game after labouring to a 1-1 draw against Norwich City at Carrow Road on Sunday but rather than the poor result, the loss of star men Sanchez and Koscielny to injury would have been more worrying for the fans.

Both Sanchez and Koscielny now look set to spend some time on the sidelines but despite the loss of the duo, Bellerin is not worried and believes that the Gunners possess a strong enough side to deal with the setback.

Speaking to Arsenal Player, Bellerin said: “I have said it before, there is great depth in the team. There are a lot of young players in the team waiting to come through, and we have a lot of quality training with us every day.

“They are ready to step up so obviously every single player on the bench can do the same job as every single player in the starting XI. We don’t need to worry about [the injuries to Alexis and Koscielny]. The only thing we need to do is go out onto the pitch with the right mentality, it does not matter who we play.”
