Hector Bellerin reacts to Sergio Aguero goal on Twitter


Sergio Aguero needed just a couple of touches to return a goal and an Arsenal teenager was swift to comment on the effort using social media.

Despite playing in a positive manner, Liverpool were swept aside by a 3-1 score by Manchester City during Monday Night Football's encounter at the Etihad Stadium.

The win moved City into third position, tied on points with Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Swansea City after just two match-days.

However, Manchester City are not yet at full strength, with prolific striker Sergio Aguero only completing 30 minutes of competitive football to date this season.

During that half hour slot, though, he has scored twice, both times coming off the bench, but the manner in which he did so enthralled a member of the Arsenal youth set-up; Hector Bellerin.

A Gunner since 2011, Bellerin transferred to Arsenal from Barcelona when he was 16-years-old. He spent two years in the academy, before graduating into the senior squad last year where he made one League Cup appearance.

After a Watford loan spell at the start of this calendar year preceded a good pre-season with the senior roster, Bellerin is now expected to begin breaking into the first-team with increased regularity.

He could do worse than learn from Aguero…

After Aguero scored City's third goal against Liverpool, just seconds after he replaced Edin Dzeko, completed a darting run and put the ball into the net, Bellerin said: "Now that is a joke, two touches [is all] he needed!"

Earlier this summer, Bellerin officially become the fastest player in the history of Arsenal football club when he broke the sprint record previously set by Theo Walcott.
