Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has been rewarded for his strong form last season by winning the Catalan Young Player of the Year award for 2014/15.

The Spaniard broke into the first-team at the Emirates during Mathieu Debuchy's spell on the sidelines and never looked back as he kept the French international out of the first-team.

He scooped 57 percent of the votes to finish ahead of Espanyol goalkeeper Pau Lopez and Lazio's Keita Balde. Gerard Pique won the senior award.

Bellerin, 20, has been ever-present in Arsene Wenger's team and has led Debuchy to consider his imminent future after he was left out of France's squad in the previous round of international fixtures.

PACE

Speed is an integral part of Bellerin's game and he showcased his blistering pace in Arsenal's 3-0 win over Swansea, unbelievably making up ground of Bafetembi Gomis and saving a certain goal. See the video below.

His also caused problems for Bayern Munich and was the catalyst behind the Gunners' second goal in their win over the German giants.

BIG LOSS

Arsenal travel to the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night and will be hoping to take at least a point to give themselves the best chance of reaching the final 16.

However, they will have to do without their Spanish full-back after he was ruled out of the tie with a groin issue.

He is the latest star to need treatment and it means Wenger takes a depleted squad to Bavaria. Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all on the sidelines.
