Hector Bellerin says that Arsenal have to keep working hard to replicate the performance that brought about Saturday’s 2-0 win over Sp*rs, but that the display and win will have silenced some of the critics.
Before the game the build-up was all about power shifts and how much the visitors would win by, risible combined XIs, and a general Tottenham love-in, but the Arsenal team were more than worth of the three points.
Speaking afterwards, Bellerin said it was an example of what this current crop is capable of.
“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,” he said.
“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.”
However, he wasn’t blind to the fact that this was the kind of performance they need to repeat, not least when we travel to Burnley next weekend looking for our
first second away win in the league this season.
Update: Forgot Everton 😉
“That’s what we’re trying to do,” he said. “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.”
