Former Liverpool and Newcastle star Michael Owen has heaped praise on one of Arsenal’s brightest prospects.

The Gunners are enduring a frustrating week after suffering a surprise 2-1 defeat to Everton before watching all of their nearest rivals win their various games on Wednesday.

Most pundits have certainly not turned down the opportunity to pick out the negative aspects of the Arsenal team over the past couple of days.

However, Michael Owen, who is known for often being critical of Wenger’s side, has highlighted one area Arsenal have nothing to worry about.

That is the right-back position where the BT Sport pundit has suggested that Hector Bellerin is proving to be one of the best in the business.

“His choice of pass is absolutely brilliant.” Own said as quoted by Sport Review

“It’s far easier as a full-back to take a touch and perfect it, but your centre-forwards need it quickly and he has the confidence to go for it.

“You’ve got to take a risk in the attacking third and he does that well.”
