Arsenal fans have been readily praising the emergence of Hector Bellerin at the Emirates Stadium over the past year or so, but it’s time to spare a thought for the Gunners’ forgotten man; Mathieu Debuchy. The Frenchman has struggled with injuries since joining the north London giants from Newcastle, and he’s now admitted he did consider leaving when Arsene Wenger favoured Bellerin for the right-back berth in the Community Shield against Chelsea. The story does have a happy ending as Debuchy also confirmed he wanted to stay and fight for his place. It makes for an interesting topic to keep an eye on in the future though. Elsewhere former Gunners defender Paul Merson has slammed Wenger over his perceived transfer failings this summer. The pundit accused Arsenal’s boss of cheating the fans - let us know what you think on the matter in the comments box below.
