The youngster Hector Bellerin may have only been in the Arsenal starting line-up for less than two seasons, but he has already become a firm favourite with the Emirates faithful so much so that he was voted in Third Place in the Arsenal Player-of-the-Season behind veteran superstars Mesut Ozil and Petr Cech. He was also given the honour of being named in the Premiership Team of the Year, which is no mean feat for one so young.
This year Mesut Ozil came into his own for Arsenal, showing everyone why he was worth every penny of the millions that Arsene Wenger splashed out on the German. There was little chance of any other player beating him to the Player of the Year trophy and so it has proved.
Spain manager Vicente Del Bosque has overlooked Arsenal trio Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal and Santi Cazorla for his provisional squad for the upcoming European Championships next month.
Many countries have named their provisional squads ahead of the upcoming Euro2016 tournament in France this summer. Spain have now released the names included on their list, and is does not feature a single Gunner.
Match Preview: Arsenal v Aston Villa
Aston Villa are Arsenal’s last opposition of a truly disappointing 2015-16 Season, which had promised so much more for the Gunners. Although to be disappointed with Arsenal’s situation, you cannot help but think about how the fans of Aston Villa must feel right now!
Do Arsenal still have a chance of finishing above Tottenham this season?
When Jon Toral arrived at Arsenal from La Masia all those years ago along with Hector Bellerin, we thought that the half-English lad was the most promising, but we all know now that Toral was held back by injury while Bellerin has gone on to become first choice at the Emirates.
The PFA have released their respective team of the seasons for the English divisions, and only one Arsenal star was selected for the final Premier League XI.
Hector Bellerin was our only inclusion in the line-up, but Nacho Monreal has been one of our stand-out stars this term, while Mesut Ozil has been incredible for much of the season.
If Arsenal are to finish the season strongly and keep the pressure on Leicester and Tottenham while keeping the teams below us at bay and ensuring a place in the Champions League next season, we will need the creative and attacking players in the side to keep up the sort of performances that have seen Arsenal score six goals in the last two Premier League games.
