Jon Toral and Hector Bellerin bringing bit of Barcelona to Arsenal

Jon Toral admits he and Hector Bellerin have brought a little bit of Barca to Arsenal this season.

Both youngsters joined Arsenal from Barcelona in the summer and combined for a goal recently against Portsmouth U18s.

"I enjoyed that and so did Hector Bellerin," he recalled to "We broke from our own box with Serge Gnabry, he passed to Hector on the right wing and then made the run forward. When I got to the edge of the area, I stepped backwards a few paces to make room for myself. Hector passed to me and I fired the ball into the top right corner. It is a move that we have been taught at Barcelona since a young age and Hector said that he knew I would be there, he did not have to look up."
