Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker has said that Hector Bellerin has been a great addition to the back four this season.

The 20-year-old scored the opening goal as the Gunners beat Liverpool 4-1 on Saturday.

Mertesacker has admitted that Bellerin has impressed him after stepping in as a result of Mathieu Debuchy?s injury problems.

?He?s given us a lot of energy this season,? Mertesacker said. ?He?s stepped up because we?ve had a lot of injuries but he gave us such a great energy and he?s capable of producing great performances.

?To put in such a good performance in front of our fans makes me delighted. I?m proud of our performance because we kept going. It was a hard-fought win in the end and we deserved it with the way we played.?

Bellerin has netted two goals in 20 appearances this season.
