Bellerin will be serving his one-match suspension on Thursday evening when Arsenal host Soton at the Emirates Stadium.

Due to the significant impact David has continued to be closely monitored for a concussion and has followed all protocols.

The best wishes of David and everyone at the Club continue to be with Raul Jimenez and his family.
