Arsenal may have started the new season slowly but their last two performances suggest they have got at least one part of their play right.
Two clean sheets in matches against Liverpool and Newcastle United will be welcomed by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and the Frenchman will be especially pleased that the Gunners followed up their 0-0 draw with the Reds with a 1-0 victory against the Magpies at St James’ Park.
The only goal of the game was an own-goal from Newcastle skipper Fabricio Coloccini and Arsenal will be happy to take the three points back to North London after a resilient defensive display from Steve McClaren’s men.
Arsenal had a few impressive players on the day, one of which was right-back Hector Bellerin.
The Spanish defender impressed against Liverpool and was again in fine form against Newcastle, proving emphatically that he is now the rightful first-choice for the Gunners in that position despite the presence of Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Arsenal fans thought of Bellerin’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
If there is a better right back than Hector Bellerin playing in the PL I am a banana #Arsenal— Andrew Nicoll Ω (@anicoll5) August 29, 2015
Two clean sheets in a row is great though. Really happy with Gabriel again. He and Bellerin did well against larger more physical players— Kelly (@kemgooner) August 29, 2015
