Here's the latest team news update from our medical team ahead of Friday’s Emirates FA Cup fourth-round clash against Manchester United:
Further to the injury sustained during our match against Chelsea on Saturday, we can confirm that Hector has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee.
Hector will undergo surgery to repair this in the coming days. The rehabilitation process is expected to take between six to nine months and therefore rules Hector out of action for the remainder of this season.
Everyone at the club will now be working as hard as we can to ensure Hector is back on the pitch as soon as possible next season.
Right foot. Expected to return to full training this week.
Left knee. Recovering after surgery.
Right ankle. Recovering after surgery.
