Pellegrini and Bellerin target Real Betis debut against Granada

New signing Hector Bellerin is pushing to make Real Betis' clash with Granada.

The Arsenal defender arrived on a season-long loan last week and has been put on a specialist fitness programme in order to give him the best chance of making the Granada game.

Bellerin hadn't played for Arsenal since the August preseason clash with Tottenham.

Now coach Manuel Pellegrini is eager to bring Bellerin into his starting XI as soon as possible - with Granada a real prospect.

For his part, Bellerin agrees and is working hard to be in shape for Monday night's LaLiga resumption.
