Hector Bellerin made his senior Arsenal debut seven years ago this week in a League Cup victory away at West Bromwich Albion under Arsene Wenger.

He has gone onto make 174 senior appearances and has scored eight goals, lifting three FA Cups.

Here are some of his best moments in red. 

Wonder strike - Arsenal 4-1 Liverpool (2015)

Hector opened the scoring in a convincing home win for Arsenal in April 2015, with a precise curled effort into the bottom corner from inside the area.

Despite conceding the penalty which led to Liverpool’s goal, this was really a game which brought Bellerin into the spotlight and made Arsenal fans excited about their future right-back.

Late equaliser – Chelsea 2-2 Arsenal (2020)

Arsenal travelled to Stamford Bridge at the end of January in a Premier League encounter. The Gunners’ went down twice and played the majority of the game with 10 men after a David Luiz red card.

Gabriel Martinelli equalised for Arsenal before Chelsea took the lead for the second time. Bellerin equalised again for his side in the last minute of the game with a curled effort from outside of the box. 

Signs of promise – Arsenal 2-0 Bayern Munich (2015)

A 2-0 home victory for Arsenal in the Champions League highlighted another strong performance by Bellerin in 2015.

The young Spaniards’ performance was filled with quality and impressed the Arsenal masses, many believing he would go on to become a world-class defender after his performance that night.

Hectors’ willingness and desire was encapsulated in his assist for Mesut Ozil, Bellerin demonstrating his pace to beat Juan Benat to the ball, and outmuscle Thiago to beat both, getting inside the box and crossing for Ozil who tapped the ball past Manuel Neuer for Arsenal’s second goal. 

Personal thoughts

Bellerin has been plagued by injuries over his career, but his consistency when in the team often goes under the radar, but he does offer moments of brilliance. 

He has become one of the most senior players in the Arsenal squad over recent years. His maturity has even seen him take the armband in the past.

His most recent outing against Leicester City in the Carabao Cup was an example of his potential and ability. 

If he stays clear of injuries in the future, he will remain Arsenal's right-back for years to come.
