Heading to the South Coast with the chance of pulling just one-point behind second-placed Liverpool in the Premier League standings, everything seemed to point towards an Arsenal victory over Bournemouth. In truth, it was the complete opposite.
Arsenal were at sixes and sevens defensively, falling to a three-goal deficit to Bournemouth, before resiliently fighting back to save some face with a superb comeback to steal a point and cap-off a tremendous night for the neutral supporters.
3-3 against Bournemouth isn’t exactly a result that Arsenal will be too happy with though and Hector Bellerin was highlighted as one of the worst performers in the game, after being caught out of position for the first goal and being bullied off the ball for the third.
For the young full-back, it was certainly his worst performance in an Arsenal shirt and fans on social media were far from forgiving, as they took to Twitter in vast numbers to criticise his performance.
Hector Bellerin is having the worst game of his life.

Hector Bellerin was wanted by Barcelona in the summer.
After this game, even Barnet wouldn't take him.
