Wenger to hand 19-year-old Premier League debut against Hull City - report

Hector Bellerin 2

Hector Bellerin is set to feature against Steve Bruce's side, with Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers both unavailable for selection.

Hector Bellerin's rise through the ranks continues.

Only a couple of years ago, the teenage defender was shining in Europe for Arsenal's NextGen side.

This summer, he impressed for Arsene Wenger's senior team during the Emirates Cup, raiding down the right-hand side and also breaking Theo Walcott's record as the fastest player on Arsenal's books.

Naturally, that progression has led to games for the first team, with Bellerin playing against both Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League and Southampton in the Capital One Cup.

Neither of those games produced a victory for Wenger's side, though, so the 19-year-old will be hoping for better during his next outing.

But he may not have to wait long, as the London Evening Standard are reporting that Bellerin will get the chance to play against Hull City this weekend.

The move would make sense, as Mathieu Debuchy is out injured and Calum Chambers is suspended. Instead of any drastic tactical changes, then - never Wenger's style, anyway - the Gunners may simply look to Bellerin to show what he can do down the right-hand side once again.

It will be the Spaniard's Premier League debut, meaning the Tigers face an unknown quantity. Both Arsenal and Bellerin will hope it is a winning one.
