Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin picks his #One2Eleven on The Fantasy Football Club.

The 20-year-old, who also plays for Spain's Under-21 side, admits his choices came from "a short career", having made his Premier League debut just last season.

But he has opted for a 4-3-3 formation, with plenty of big names from club and national level.


I've played with a few good [goalkeepers], especially at Arsenal, but I'm going to choose Cech. Since the moment he came to the club with the quality he has and the experience, it has helped me a lot.

He's given me a lot of advice as a young player and not just as a goalkeeper, but as a person, I rate him a lot.

RIGHT-BACK: Bacary Sagna

He was the right-back at Arsenal when I arrived and the player I looked at the most. He was a great mentor for me, especially defensively. He wouldn't stop winning balls in the air, was always tight defensively and when going forward he was always good at creating chances.

LEFT-BACK: Jose Luis Gaya

He's my age and last year was his first year. He had a very good season as well as an attacking left-back [at Valencia]. I've played with him since Under-16s for the national team and he's a player that's going to go really far in his career.

CENTRE-BACK: Laurent Koscielny

He's one of the top centre-backs in the world right now and has improved a lot in the last four or five years. He has a very good technique, knows when to play the ball and he scores a lot of goals as well. He already has two or three this season, which I think is important for a centre-back.

CENTRE-BACK: Nacho Monreal

He had a few games last year as a centre-back and he's one of the best players I've come across. He's a great person as well who helped me a lot in the dressing room when I was coming in as a young player. [It's nice] having these kind of people that help you when things go wrong in any single moment, and that they can be like a big brother to you.


He's young as well and a top player who is very good with his feet. He's one of those players that makes you fall in love with football, he runs all game and is one of the top prospects in Spain.


He's the little magician, that's what we call him. Just training with him and seeing how good he is with both feet, I've never seen a player like that. He makes the game look so easy for someone when you think how small he is on the pitch!

He's a great person as well with great banter, the kind of person that is always smiling and makes you feel at home as well.


He is one of the most intelligent players I've played with and has an eye for the pass that no one else sees. I don't think there's a better No 10 than him at the moment. When he first came to Arsenal we were all very excited and now he's showing us what he's all about.

When I first got to train with him [when I joined the first-team] it was unbelievable to see the stuff he could do. I feel very lucky to share a dressing room with him.

RIGHT-WING: Gerard Deulofeu

At Barcelona he was a year older than me so we never really played together, but we used to live in the same area and in the summer we'd play in five-aside tournaments. So now going against each other in the Premier League or playing together for the Under-21s it makes you feel really proud that it's not just you but your friends that are also making it.

LEFT-WING: Alexis Sanchez

A player like him is always so hard to defend against. I've been training with him for more than a year and it's still so hard, you literally never know what he's going to do, he's so quick, always touches the ball at the last minute and has an eye for goal as well.

It's always nice to know that you have a player who at any minute of the game can score from like 40 yards. We are very happy at the club to have him in our team and it's a joy to train with him every day.

STRIKER: Troy Deeney

I played with him at Watford and I think he's another very complete player. He's very strong, very good in the air, but then he's actually got a lot of quality in his feet.

When I first went to Watford when I was 18 and very skinny I tried to fight with him for a ball and I remember he looked at me as if to say: "Did you really try that?" And I was thinking it was impossible but he helped me a lot, and really had an eye for goal.
