Arsenal face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup Finals 2017/18 on 25 February, 2017 in the iconic Wembley Stadium.
Some of the best players around the glove will collide as the world looks upon.
Talking about the best players, two of the best full back around the globe at the moment – Hector Bellerin and Kyle Walker will clash against each other.
Arsenalcore will today walk you through some of the strengths and weaknesses of Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin and Manchester City’s Kyle Walker.
On one hand, Hector Bellerin have made a name for himself with his performances with Arsenal. Over the time he has established himself as one of the first names in the Starting XI.
Bellerin can become a nightmare for defenders with his record going forward and can cover quick ground to help defensively. He has grown as a defender over the years and is matured enough to take right decisions defensively in nail-biting moments.

Bellerin records on average 2 clearances every 90 minutes this season. Not only his clearances but also his interceptions and tackles are his strengths. Hector doesn’t dive into challenges and his commitment to get back the ball speaks for itself.
His funky pace, ability to cross the ball and dribbling potential is key to his offensive success.
Kyle Walker moved to Manchester City from Tottenham in the summer, in the same time getting tagged as one of the most expensive defender with the ‘awe’ amount paid by the Blues of Manchester.
Walker is a physical full back, who gives hard time to the opposition wingers. With his physicality, his tackling is also one of his strengths.
Walker is pacy but not as much as Hector Bellerin, though the latter deficits on physical aspects comparatively.
Walker is equally a beast going forward and his creativity at around opposition penalty area might create some changes to score.
In the near past, both Hector Bellerin and Kyle Walker are two of the best full-backs in Premier League. But only one will finish on top this Sunday.
