Has Bellerin done enough to be Arsenal first-choice right-back?

Has Bellerin overtaken Calum Chambers as Right Back? By Twig

Much has been said about the stellar performances of Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin in our last game,
but the very impressive performance of Hector Bellerin has pretty much gone unnoticed. Bellerin has had
both highs and lows at right back for Arsenal. Against Stoke he had a torrid time and had to be hauled off
at half time, but he had been quite impressive ever since. What is most encouraging is his humility and
willingness to learn:

FULL Arsenal injury update a BIG worry for Brighton clash?

Arsene Wenger has given the latest round-up of the Arsenal injury situation in his pre-match press conference ahead of the FA cup fourth round match away to Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday. We should be used to this by now I suppose, but it would be nice just for once to not lose another player or two every time the Gunners play.

This time, as revealed on the official Arsenal website, it is our young Spanish right back Hector Bellerin and the England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain that have picked up knocks and may not be able to feature this weekend. There is more chance of the Spaniard being available and that would be a big relief with Debuchy already on the sidelines.

Arsenal were a WHOLE TEAM of stars! Even Wenger….

Arsene came out with a plan for once, and it worked! by KM

So Arsenal gave me the best birthday gift you can have as an Arsenal fan with that marvelous 2-0 win away to Man City. Straight off to the positives with the number one being Arsene Wenger going out with an idea of how to beat city.

A performance Jose Mourinho would’ve been proud is something none of us expected really. Far too often have people (including myself) criticized Wenger for coming out trying to outplay good teams and getting ripped on the counter.

FIVE things Arsenal fans learned from our win at Man City

5 things Arsenal fans realised after the win at Manchester City by Demitri

1. Arsene Wenger has not lost his tactical nous

It was quite unexpected for all football fans that Wenger had a trick up his sleeve for this away game. Arsenal fans did not have too much hope for this game, and pundits, like Gary Neville, were condemning Arsenal before the game had even started. Based on history, it was easy to see why, but after watching the game, people were pleasantly surprised by Wenger’s tactics. After conceding 17 goals in 3 away games at the Etihad Stadium, Anfield and Stamford Bridge last season, which was the difference between 4th place and winning the league for Arsenal, Wenger took a leaf out of, his rival manager, Jose Mourinho’s book and ‘parked the bus’.

My tactical analysis of Man City v Arsenal – Outfoxed!

A clash of the tactical masterminds by JA

Hey guys what’s up? I know you had a great weekend just like me! I’m completely over the moon from yesterday and I’m absolutely sorry I doubted some of the Arsenal players.

From a tactical point of view, both gaffers did their best to outfox the other subtly but our manager won. So here is my analysis from the game…..

Bellerin happy to work hard for his place at Arsenal

The young Spaniard Hector Bellerin has already made eight starts for the Gunners his season due to our horrendous injury list, but he has made it clear that he knows other players are ahead of him in the pecking order, but he has a plan on how to get ahead of them in the future.

Bellerin said on Arsenal.com: “You know there are always players in front of and behind you, who are going to try to get your spot. The only thing you can do is learn from them.

The whole Arsenal squad is waiting for Theo!

Despite the arrival of Alexis Sanchez this season, Arsenal have looked short of pace up front and are having trouble getting in behind determined defences, we according to our newest right-back Hector Bellerin, the reason is because Theo Walcott has not been available to introduce more speed into our play.

“Hopefully we get to start a game together and hopefully then we can show people that pace on the right-hand side and obviously just help the team,” Bellerin told Arsenal.com.

Arsenal score four and Wenger praises the defence!

Arsenal were back to the best in yesterday’s 4-1 win at Newcastle and Giroud, and Cazorla scored two apiece to give us a very comfortable victory, not to mention Welbeck’s unluckily disallowed finish and the numerous other chances created in the 90 minutes. After the game you would have expected Arsene Wenger to highlight the attacking qualities in our rejuvenated side, but he was quicker to praise our defence.

“We played well today with a very offensive team,” Wenger said on Arsenal.com. “I felt that even defensively we looked comfortable and the balance was right.

Happy Arsenal fans as Wenger declares January defender transfer!!

There was only one thing to worry about for Arsenal fans, well for me at least, as the Gunners cruised to a 4-1 victory over a good Newcastle United team fresh from a win over the Premier League leaders Chelsea. And it was not whether Arsene Wenger was so thankful to the Magpies for stopping Jose Mourinho emulating the invincibles season.

With an Arsenal squad and particularly our back four that was ravaged with injury problems, the makeshift defence with Debuchy alongside Mertesacker and Bellerin at right back, put in a really solid showing. The young Spaniard and the Frenchman were particularly good, Gibbs carried on his recent excellent form and our BFG suggested once more that he is world class as long as he is comfortable with the players around him.

Arsenal vs Newcastle Preview, Line Up and Score Prediction

Arsenal vs Newcastle Preview, Predicted line up and score line by KJ

We’ve been extremely inconsistent in the league and this means that the top 4 hasn’t really been established. At the moment, United are the most likeliest to make it in there but the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool have all failed to really establish themselves and are now in a fight with each other to get that final place.

Should Arsenal play Bellerin or Coquelin against Newcastle?

We know that Arsenal are having terrible problems keeping enough defenders fit for the visit of in-form Newcastle United this evening, not to mention the in-form-but suspended Calum Chambers, but I think we can all safely say that Kieran Gibbs, Per Mertesacker and Martin Debuchy are certainties to start the game.

We all thought that this meant that the Spanish youngster Hector Bellerin was nailed on to take the right-back position, but Arsene Wenger has announced that he won’t make a decision until today. Le Prof said yesterday: “He (Bellerin) is getting better from game to game,”

Wenger – Arsenal fans SHOULD NOT judge our defence harshly

There is no doubt that Arsene Wenger should have invested in one more defender and a defensive midfielder in the summer transfer window, because injuries (and suspensions – like now) have left the Arsenal squad with practically no defenders.

But Wenger feels that the Arsenal fans have been harsh in constantly criticizing the weak state of our defence and suggests that we should also consider the ames when we have defended well. “I think we defended well in Galatasaray,” Wenger said on Arsenal.com. “Before that game we had three clean sheets in a row but that is the modern game – it is always the last game that is judged definitively on the quality of the team.
