Arsenal went into the north London derby against Tottenham last weekend being considered underdogs by many, given how both teams had been doing since the start of the season, but their performance and 2-0 win sent a clear message of who remain… bosses in their rivalry with Spurs.
There’s always a lot of talk but I think it was one of those games where we showed what we could do. We shut some mouth as well. There are people who talk a lot and now, after watching that game at home, they’ll be thinking that these guys have a chance
Hector Bellerin told Arsenal’s official website, encouraged by their win over an opponent they hadn’t beaten in the Premier League since 2014.
We’re trying to find greater consistency. Sometimes, for different reasons, we haven’t been able to do it, but this is how we set the bar and show what potential we have. That’s what we’ve got to work hard to do every single week, week in, week out
the Spain international also said. Bellerin was asked about Mesut Ozil as well, one of Arsenal’s key figures in the derby win, despite not scoring himself.
Mesut is someone who gets a lot of criticism, but the players who are around him are very happy to have him and play with him. He makes things very easy for us
his teammate commented.
