The Spanish striker scored a hat-trick for Arsenal against Basel in the Champions League on Tuesday night

Hector Bellerin took to social media to congratulate Lucas Perez after the the Spanish striker scored a hat-trick in Arsenal’s 4-1 Champions League win over Basel on Tuesday night.

Perez netted twice in the first half and again shortly after the break to send Arsene Wenger’s men on their way to victory in Switzerland, before Alex Iwobi added a fourth. Seydou Doumbia scored a consolation for the home side.

The victory meant that Arsenal topped their Champions League group against the odds after PSG were held to a surprise 2-2 draw by Ludogorets in Paris.

It was an impressive performance from Arsenal but especially from Perez, who joined the north London side from Deportivo La Coruna in the summer transfer window.

And Bellerin – who is currently sidelined with an ankle problem – was quick to use his personal Instagram account to react to the victory for the Gunners.

Bellerin shared the photo above on the app and wrote the caption: ‪”Yesssss boys!! Top of the @uefachampionsleague group 💪 congrats @10lp on the hat-trick hermano!! #COYG‬”
