Arsenal’s 3-3 draw with Liverpool on Friday night has been described as ‘bittersweet’ by Hector Bellerin who feels that although the result was fair, the Gunners could have picked up all three points.
Goals from Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil overturned the opposition’s 2-0 lead, until a 70th minute equaliser from Firmino ensured the game ended in stalemate.
The Spaniard acknowledged that the first half was poor, but still feels there are some positives.
We didn’t start well, they got in front but the boss put us in our place,” he said.
“He told us what we had to do and the team got a great reaction. We scored three quick goals and you could see the belief in the team.
“But we needed to defend better to keep the score. We couldn’t do it so it’s a bit bittersweet, with being in front but then drawing the game.
“But there are positives, like the belief the team had and how we turned it around. We showed we could turn it around but then we made a mistake at a corner and paid for it.
“It’s a draw that could be fair for both teams but, with being in front, it’s a bit bittersweet.”
Little known fact: Arsene Wenger helped Richard Ashcroft with some of the lyrics for the Verve classic:
“No change, I can’t change, I can’t change, I can’t change,
But I’m here in my mold, I am here in my mold.”
