Watch: Hector Bellerin takes *another* foul throw, Arsenal Twitter erupts


Hector Bellerin’s foul throw during Arsenal‘s 2-0 defeat at Tottenham aptly summarised the Gunners’ performance – and their fans have not held back on Twitter.

Bellerin has become a lightning rod for Arsenal’s dysfunction over recent weeks, with fans expressing their frustration with the long-serving full-back’s performances in Mikel Arteta’s struggling team.

Top of the list of their complaints is Bellerin’s penchant for foul throws. Sixteen have been committed so far in the Premier League this season, a figure that seems ridiculously high considering the basic nature of the act.

Bellerin has been responsible for five alone, a total that would embarrass a Sunday League player.

His effort during Sunday’s north London derby was a classic of the genre. Frustration at the lack of team-mates showing themselves as options? Check.

Eventually deciding to throw the ball into space, after exhausting all possible hand gestures? Check.

Not putting the ball fully over your head, deciding to simply drop the ball back into play instead? That’s a hat-trick.

Arsenal fans on Twitter reacted in the manner you might expect.
