Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Hector Bellerin performance against Benfica


Hector Bellerin shone for Arsenal against Benfica on Saturday, so what did the fans have to say about his performance?

Arsenal's Emirates Cup match against Benfica proved a joy to watch for the Gunners faithful, with Yaya Sanogo making an emphatic statement for first-team inclusion next season and Joel Campbell netting following his return from Greece.

While much was also said and written about Arsenal's new recruits - Calum Chambers, Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy - it was a young defender who really caught the eye.

Hector Bellerin started the match at right-back and took the opportunity with both hands.  He may only be 19, but the Spaniard proved to be every inch an Arsenal player as he refused to be undone by the occasion.

Debuchy may have been signed as the first-choice replacement for Bacary Sagna, but Chambers can also cover in that position, leaving questions over how much game-time Bellerin would see.

Well, until yesterday at least, with the teenager proving he deserves chances now.  And given the amount of matches Arsenal look set to play next season, he will surely get them, with Chambers able to occupy other areas freeing up the substitute right-back spot for Bellerin.
