Defender Hector Bellerin has stated that Arsenal’s morale is positive following a upturn in fortunes of late.
The Gunners started the season with two losses from their opening three league meetings, including a disastrous 4-0 demolition at the hands of Liverpool, and thinks were looking ominous for our campaign after a tough transfer window also.
We have turned things around since however, with three wins and a respectable draw away at champions Chelsea, and Hector Bellerin claims the club are now positive moving forwards.
“Even before Chelsea, the games against Bournemouth and in the Europa League helped the team build up the momentum,” he said.
“And the last few games against Chelsea, we have always come out on top and the team was confident we could do the same again.
“We were a bit disappointed as we had chances to score and when you come out of the game thinking, ‘we could have won that’, it is a bit disappointing.
“But to perform away from Stamford Bridge, which is always hard, and to come out with a clean sheet and a solid performance was very good for the mood in the team and the club.”
“It is all about keeping the momentum going,” he added.
“In the League Cup, even though the team completely changed, I think the mood in the whole squad was the same.
“Everyone came out on the pitch to get the win and we have to keep building on this momentum right now and make it another win for us hopefully.”
Will West Brom be put to the sword tonight? Does our team look to be playing full of confidence at present?
