Arsenal are in the midst of a defensive crisis…
Arsenal youngster Hector Bellerin has hinted that he may make his Champions League debut against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, with the club in the midst of a defensive crisis.
The Gunners lost Mathieu Debuchy to injury on Saturday during the 2-2 draw with Manchester City, while Kieran Gibbs is already sidelined with a knock picked up earlier in the season.
Bellerin tweeted this earlier today:

The 19-year-old Spaniard featured in the majority of Arsenal’s Youth League campaign last season and made seven appearances for the under-21s, scoring two goals. The energetic defender made his debut for the senior side in September 2013 when he came on as a late substitute against West Brom in the League Cup.
Strong in possession and direct going forward, Hector was part of the squad that visited New York in pre-season and he also featured in the 2014 Emirates Cup where he produced an eye-catching display against Benfica.
