Ibrahimovic absence does not negatively affect PSG - Arsenal defender Bellerin

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has stated that PSG will not be affected by the loss of Zlatan Ibrahimovic ahead of the Gunners' clash with the French giants.

PSG lost the services of Ibrahimovic to Manchester United during the summer and the departure of their talisman certainly seems to have negatively affected the Parisians after enduring a slow start to their Ligue 1 campaign thus far.

PSG now prepare to square off against Arsenal in the Champions League at home on Tuesday night and ahead of the encounter, Bellerin has dismissed the notion that the French champions are missing a vital ingredient.

Bellerin said: "As a club, they have lots of good players so I don't think it affects them at all.

"They have a really strong three and any player up front will be dangerous.

"We have to face the match in the same way that we would if Ibra was playing. We feel up for it."
