Bellerin - Playing here is so much fun

Hector Bellerin has described how much enjoyment he gets from playing for Arsenal.

The 20-year-old had only made one substitute appearance before the start of the season, but has already featured 20 times for the Gunners this campaign.

Bellerin started last Monday’s 3-1 win at Hull City and he explained how easy it is to play for Arsenal when they are at their free-flowing best.

"They’re all top players and it’s really helpful, so they make you look like you’re a good player as well!"

“It’s always good fun,” the defender said. “You always enjoy yourself playing with these players around you. They’re all top players and it’s really helpful.

“They make you look like you’re a good player as well! It’s really nice to play alongside them and when we play at home with our crowd it’s always a really great feeling.

“The fact that Arsenal plays that kind of football is going to help you. That was really important [in coming to Arsenal] and the fact that Arsenal like to bring young players through.

“We have loads of players in my position,” Bellerin added. “But I think that’s a really positive thing because it makes you train and work harder, which is a good thing for us.

“We have really good players fighting for their spots in every position, so that’s one of the reasons why everyone is performing the way that they are, because it’s bringing out the best in us.”
