Bellerin impresses on home debut

After 10 years at Arsenal, Hector Bellerin moved back to his native Spain and joined Betis during the summer transfer window.

And the move meant that, at the age of 26, the fullback finally got a taste for La Liga football as he made his debut for his new club in their 2-1 win at Granada on Monday.

He then made his home bow on Sunday afternoon when Betis welcomed Espanyol to the Benito Villamarin Stadium.

And Bellerin showed great determination in the final third to keep an attack alive and square the ball for Nabil Fekir to put the hosts ahead in first-half injury time.

And Merson has joined former Spurs manager Jose Mourinho in praising the tough-tackling defender’s reliability after he helped keep a clean sheet as Mikel Arteta’s side beat Burnley 1-0 on Saturday afternoon.

“Tierney never lets you down”, Merson said on Sky Sports News after the full-time whistle.
