Arsenal star Hector Bellerin named in EA Team of the Week for North London derby performance

Tottenham WHL

Hector Bellerin joined Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in EA's team of best performers.

Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin earned a spot in EA Sports' Europe-wide Team of the Week after his accomplished display in the North London derby.

The Gunners drew 2-2 at White Hart Lane, ensuring they did not lose further ground on rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Bellerin joined both multiple times Ballon d'Or winners Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the XI, with Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana also included.

Championship duo Bruno Ecuele-Manga of Cardiff City and Middlesbrough's Gaston Ramirez also earned recognition from their performances.

Bellerin won 12 duels against Tottenham, winning four tackles and making one interception. The 20-year-old is proving to be an outstanding player already, and Barcelona must be ruing the fact Arsenal were able to tempt him away as a 16-year-old.

The 12 duels was only bettered by four Premier League players at the weekend, with Dan Gosling of Bournemouth winning 18, and Southampton's Virgil van Dijk (14) the only defender to record higher.
