Hector Bellerin is ready for Arsenal's clash against Manchester City on Monday

Hector Bellerin says he is ready for Arsenal’s crunch clash with Manchester City at Emirates Stadium on Monday night.

The Gunners can move to within two points of surprise Premier League leaders Leicester City and extend their lead to four points over the Citizsens if Arsene Wenger’s men beat Manuel Pellegrini’s side in north London.

Bellerin has been in excellent form for the FA Cup holders this season, but the Spanish youngster will face a stern examination on Monday night after one of the Champions League group-stage’s best wingers, Raheem Sterling.

But unsurprisingly, the 20-year-old is relishing the challenge as Bellerin took to Instagram to send a message to the Arsenal supporters ahead of Monday night’s top-of-the-table clash.

Bellerin has made one assist in 14 Premier League games for the north London outfit this season.
