The Arsenal faithful were proud of their young right-backs performance.
Eden Hazard picked up the PFA Player of the Year award this evening, but some Arsenal fans are finding the funny side of his appearance at the award ceremony. They would like to know when he escaped the back pocket of Hector Bellerin.
The young Spaniard started against Hazard this afternoon as Arsenal drew 0-0 with Chelsea and put in an exemplary performance.
Despite his young age, Bellerin was not out of his depth against the Belgian, keeping him shackled for the entire game rightly earning the plaudits of Arsenal fans on Twitter.
It was not just his marshaling of Hazard that deserves credit. In a fairly dire game of football Bellerin tried his best to add some attacking verve to proceedings. With his pace and work ethic makes a tremendous full-back and Arsenal look to have a gem on their hands.
Add to that the goal-line clearance he produced after Oscar had beating David Ospina to the ball and you see just how impressive Bellerin's performance was.
Here is some of the best reaction to his performance from Twitter...

Bellerin showed again that he is our best right back today. What a talent. I'll be disappointed if he doesn't retire as an Arsenal legend.— Ollie (@AFCOllie) April 26, 2015
All I know is, Bellerin is going to be one of the best Right backs in the world. Outstanding keeping Hazard so quiet.— Özil Wizardry (@OzilWizardry) April 26, 2015
As if we needed any more confirmation that Bellerin is the real deal. Hazard caused him zero problems. Had the intelligence not to lunge in.— Arsène FC (@VieiraPaddy) April 26, 2015
Nobody is giving Bellerin the credit he deserves. The man kept Hazard in his pocket the whole game. @HectorBellerin— Vedat (@ArsenalDilek) April 26, 2015
Bellerin dealt with Hazard so well today. I don't think you can use his inexperience against him anymore. He's ready to play every week.— JB™ (@gunnerpunner) April 26, 2015
