Arsenal has traveled to their match against Ludogorets Razgrad in the Champions League tomorrow without Hector Bellerin, Santi Cazorla, Nacho Monreal or Theo Walcott.

Bellerin is being rested, while the rest of the players in that group are recovering from various injuries.

Bellerin’s absence should clear the way for young Carl Jenkinson, who recently appeared in a League Cup match against Reading, to play some valuable minutes at the right back spot. And while going into a match without Walcott or Cazorla isn’t ideal, the Gunners have a lot of depth in midfield this year and should be able to handle Ludogorets Razgrad regardless.

However, do go ahead and prep your #WengerOut tweets just in case they don’t.
