Hector Bellerin has doubled down on recent calls to get his hair cut, with the Arsenal defender sporting a bold new choice for FA Cup semi-final weekend.

Bellerin's form has been below his usual high standards in recent weeks, with Arsenal fans suggesting something of a reverse Samson effect was taking place as the defender's hair and beard grew longer with every passing disappointment on the field.

The 22-year-old took to Snapchat yesterday to show himself in the barbers' chair as Arsenal prepare to take on Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday, with many fans breathing a (premature) sigh of relief that Bellerin's trim would restore him to the swashbuckling right back of last season.

However, Bellerin's Snapchat message was all an elaborate ruse, with pictures from Arsenal's final training session showing the Spaniard has had his hair braided ahead of meeting Pep Guardiola's side in west London.

Needless to say, Bellerin's new look has had a mixed reaction on Twitter.
