Arsenal fans on Twitter hailed the return of Hector Bellerin from injury, even crediting Theo Walcott’s performance against Stoke to the full-back.
Bellerin, who missed almost five weeks with an ankle problem, came on after just 24 minutes against the Potters to replace the injured Shkodran Mustafi.
He then set up Walcott for Arsenal’s equaliser and the pair’s partnership down the right impressed many Gunners supporters.
Bellerin is so important on the field for us as Walcott looks so ordinary without him #AFC

No surprise that Theo’s form dipped while Bellerin was injured. They link up pretty well

Bellerin brings out the best out of Walcott.

Somehow Bellerin playing helps Walcott.

Not a huge coincidence that Walcott scores again within minutes of Bellerin coming back into the side.

So Theo playing better the day Hector comes back. Surely not a coincidence?

The joy on my face when Bellerin entered yesterday though…. He’s made the whole right wing his that Walcott then operates as a striker.
