Hector Bellerin’s former coach believe that the Spaniard has all the necessary attributes to develop into a top player at Arsenal.

The 20-year-old has established himself as a regular in the Arsenal first-team in recent months after breaking into Arsene Wenger’s side last season.

Bellerin’s searing pace helped to set up Mesut Ozil for Arsenal’s second goal in their 2-0 win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

And former Barcelona youth coach Andres Carrasco is expecting big things from the full-back in the coming seasons.

Carrasco told Sky Sports: “The psychological aspect is very important.

“Bellerin was a boy who seemed 20 when he was 15.

“When you have a player like Bellerin, who has gone through all the different age groups until 16 [you know] he is going to be of a very high standard both technically and tactically.”

Bellerin, who joined the Gunners from Barcelona as a teenager, will be hoping to feature when Arsenal return to Premier League action with a home clash against Everton on Saturday evening.

The Gunners head into the game against the Toffees knowing that a victory would move them top of the Premier League table ahead of Manchester City’s trip to Manchester United on Sunday.
