Arsenal are aiming for our tenth win in a row on Monday at Leicester, but we are all well aware that we are not really playing well and the opposition haven’t been world-beaters. But at least we are developing the winning mentality and belief that we are on the right track to success, even if it isn’t very pretty right now. Hector Bellerin certainly thinks so. “We need to be realistic, Rome wasn’t built in a day,” Bellerin told Arsenal.com. “There’s loads of things that are changing for us, not just as a team but as a football club so the most important thing is to believe in the way that we want to play.
“We’re a team now that play from the back, we probably risk it a bit more than before, but for us it is important for our fans and for everyone around us to believe in this idea that we have.
“At the beginning it is going to be harder, but the more we train it, the more we work at it, the better we are going to get at it.
“For us it is about getting used to the system, be a team, be competitive and have this winning mentality, take it to the next level and become the team that the manager has in mind.
“I’m sure with the help of the fans and everyone at the club we will be able to do it.”
And he is right, the fans need to get behind the team even when (as it will) we get punished for our mistakes, which could happen any time. But we are definitely improving, scoring goals and entertaining the crowds and moving back up the table. Let us all allow for a few hiccups on the way shall we?
