Arsenal’s 0-0 draw at Chelsea may have marked a vast improvement on the abject performance at Anfield but Hector Bellerin was left unsatisfied at the Gunners failure to claim all three points.
Arsene Wenger’s men had three good chances to score in the first half and a goal ruled out after the break as they put in a disciplined performance that balanced attacking thrusts with defensive stability.
“I’m disappointed because we had chances to win the game,” Bellerin told Arsenal.com after the game.
“To be fair they had a few as well, but I think if we would have been efficient at the beginning of the game it would have been completely different with the chances we had.
“Obviously we know it’s a hard venue to come to and we can’t really be that disappointed with a point because it was well-fought by both teams, but the fact that we thought we could have come away with a win was disappointing.
“Sometimes there’s games that are not going your way and that doesn’t mean the team is not good enough. We’ve had a few good results in the past week, we’ve got the confidence back and were ready to beat Chelsea. It wasn’t to be, but I think we have to take a lot of positives from the game.”
The single point takes Arsenal’s tally for the season to seven, six behind joint leaders Manchester United and Manchester City. West Brom, Brighton, Watford, Everton and Swansea make up the Gunners next five opponents and represent a real opportunity to close that gap.
