Hector Bellerin

Pacy right back Hector was promoted to Arsenal's first team at the start of the 2014/15 campaign after he spent time on loan at Watford the previous season to gain valuable experience.

The young Spaniard also featured in the majority of Arsenal's 2013/14 Youth League campaign and made seven appearances for the under-21s, scoring two goals.

The energetic defender made his debut for the senior side in September 2013 when he came on as a late substitute against West Brom in the League Cup.

Strong in possession and direct going forward, Hector was part of the squad that visited New York in pre-season and he also featured in the 2014 Emirates Cup where he produced an eye-catching display against Benfica.

He then made his full debut against Borussia Dortmund the following month before making his first Premier League appearance when he started against Hull City in October.

Hector impressed so much that he quickly became a regular in Arsene Wenger's matchday squad for 2014/15 as back-up to Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers at right back.

After making his Champions League debut against Borussia Dortmund in September, Hector was handed his Premier League debut against Hull City a month later, providing an attacking threat while defending well for 90 minutes. “Hector had a great performance," Nacho Monreal said after the game. "He's been training with us all season, so we know exactly what he can do and what type of potential he has. He took his opportunity in pre-season and he did it again on Saturday. He had a great game. He's very young and he has a long way to go in his development. Given that he is so young and he does have such potential, I think he's going to have a great career ahead of him."


Hector was in every Arsenal matchday squad for their November matches but did not feature for Arsene Wenger’s side.


Hector played three times in December and assisted Olivier Giroud for his second goal against Newcastle United. Speaking at the end of the year, the defender said: “From the beginning of this year, I’ve been with the first team and being involved in the games that I have played in has been the highlight for me. The trust I’ve been getting and the minutes I’ve been playing, plus just being around the first team has been the highlight of it.”


Hector played three times in January, helping Arsenal keep consecutive clean sheets against Hull City, Stoke City and Manchester City.


Hector featured in five of Arsenal’s six games in March, completing 90 minutes on three occasions.
