We secured a hard-fought point in Sunday’s goalless draw at Stamford Bridge - but it could have been more.
Hector Bellerin played more key passes than anyone else on the field in the first half, creating chances for Danny Welbeck and Alex Lacazette.. Unfortunately neither could convert.
- 'We responded exactly how I expected'
- The latest on Danny Welbeck
- Wenger on Lacazette and the late red card
“I’m disappointed because we had chances to win the game,” Bellerin said at full-time. “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.”
Bellerin was pleased with the team’s improvement from our last away league game, the 4-0 defeat at Anfield before the international break.
“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.”
