Interview

Bellerin - I’m proud of how we reacted

When Marcos Alonso scored for Chelsea with seven minutes remaining, it looked like we would be frustrated again in another thrilling game at Emirates Stadium.

But Hector Bellerin fired in a deserved last-gasp equaliser to secure us a hard-earned point against Chelsea and this is what he told the media afterwards:

on an entertaining game…
It was non-stop football, running up and down. We know when we play them that it is always a hard game, always entertainment, but we we worked hard all week and it is a bit disappointing because we should have held the score [at 1-0 up] but it was a great reaction at the end.

on the penalty decision…
Hazard is very quick in the box and the ball was in the air and I went to challenge for it, but we both got there at the same time and the referee thought it was a penalty. We will have to see the replay to see what it was like.

on scoring the equaliser…
Well I haven’t scored for a while so it was great to do it in a comeback in a hard-fought game. I’m happy with the goal but also happy with the reaction towards the end from the whole team.
