The 20-year-old England international was benched in Madrid’s midweek game against Las Palmas and returned to the starting XI last weekend to achieve a new milestone in his brief La Liga career. Moreover, Bellingham is two goals away from equaling his season-best in the league tally of scoring 8 goals in the Bundesliga at Borussia Dortmund in the last season.
