The 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.

Bellerin posted on Twitter afterwards to reassure fans and Arsenal provided a further positive update on Wednesday.

"Hector will be further assessed on Thursday and Friday, prior to a final decision being made regarding his availability for full training and Saturday’s home match against Hull City."
