Although it’s difficult, Bellerin still optimistic Arsenal can get a place in UCL
Given the gap and the rest of the match this season, it seems difficult for Arsenal to get a place in the last four of the Premier League final standings. However, defender Hector Bellerin claimed to remain optimistic about the opportunities that exist.
As is known, the Premier League has been rolled back since last June. However, Arsenal did not achieve good results in the first two matches. Mikel Arteta’s troops lost at the hands of Brighton and Southampton.
Fortunately, the Gunners can move on and rise from adversity. They successfully won the last two matches against Sheffield United and won 4-0 over Norwich City.
Thanks to these two consecutive wins, the north London club managed to penetrate seventh in the Premier League standings with a collection of 46 points. With that many points, Arsenal are still eight points behind the top four.
Mathematically, Arsenal should still be able to catch the distance. But given the performance of rivals like Chelsea and MU who tend to be consistent, it seems difficult for the Gunners to break into the top four.
Even so, Hector Bellerin feels quite confident that his team is still able to secure tickets to the European Champions League next season, which has been the club’s main target since the start of the season.
For us, securing Champions League tickets has been the main goal since the start of the season. Not a good start when we returned to competing in this event, but we worked very hard during the quarantine period. Not just physical, but also tactically.
After the game against Brighton we realized that we had to be more aggressive. We have to be better when we do the duel. “In the last few matches we have shown we are ready for it and will continue to fight.” Bellerin said as quoted by Standard Sports.
Furthermore, the former Barcelona academy player is lauded by Aubameyang’s performance who poured two goals against Norwich City yesterday.
“I think the statistics speak for themselves. Nowadays it is very difficult to get a striker who can score a lot of goals in many matches. We are very happy to have it,” said Bellerin.
