Arsenal fans react to Hector Bellerin assist for Real Betis
A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Hector Bellerin after the right-back produced a superb assist for Real Betis on Sunday.
The Gunners appear to have uncovered a potential gem after signing Takehiro Tomiyasu during the final stages of the summer transfer window.
That move opened the door for Bellerin to join Manuel Pellegrini’s men on loan for the season.
Tomiyasu has made a very bright start. And Bellerin is also seemingly making a positive impression with Los Verdiblancos.
He registered an assist on Sunday as Betis drew 2-2 with Espanyol. He managed to take two players out of the equation with a brilliant sliding challenge to keep the ball in play.
The Spaniard then found Nabil Fekir inside the box. And the attacking midfielder made the most of the chance to put Betis 2-1 up.
Unfortunately, they conceded a 96th minute equaliser, meaning that they had to settle for their third draw in five La Liga games.
There has been a mixed reaction amongst Arsenal fans on social media following Bellerin’s assist for Betis.
Some have insisted that his contribution in the final third is proof that Mikel Arteta was not getting the best out of Bellerin.
But most seem to be hoping that this is the start of a very good season for the 26-year-old – to ensure that Arsenal can command a considerable fee next summer.
The Gunners are well-stocked at right-back right now. And if Tomiyasu kicks on, Bellerin will not necessarily be needed back in North London.
‘Maybe they’ll make an offer’: Arsenal fans react to Bellerin assist
A permanent sale would have arguably been ideal in the summer. And a positive year in Spain must surely boost their hopes of finding a buyer at the end of this season.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Arsenal fans were saying about Bellerin after his assist…

Proof if any that his role with us under Mikel was not to get forward
He was used as an inverted central player when we had possession, why he didn’t get forward all the time down the flank with us https://t.co/43cPaEMqnS
