    Bellerin has been fairly dreadful so far this Season and I would rather see AMN taking his place.His main asset was always his pace and since his return from injury this now seems to have deserted him.His inability to get up and down the right side of the pitch seems to often leave him in “no man’s land” when defending…and frankly someone who can’t even take a throw in properly needs to be sold and not appear as a first team regular.
