Hector Bellerin believes that Arsenal have lacked good fortune in front of goal recently.
The Gunners had 28 shots against Sunderland at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday but could not find the net and were held to a 0-0 draw.
Arsene Wenger’s side have now failed to score at home in three consecutive home games but Bellerin is pleased that Arsenal are still creating chances.
"We hit the post as well and we just feel like we’re unlucky. It’s a bit frustrating but we just need to keep our head up and concentrate on the next game"
“It was a frustrating night,” the defender told Arsenal Player. “We had loads of chances and we should have won that game. It seems like lately we’ve been a bit unlucky in front of goal because we get loads of chances but we don’t seem to be as efficient as before, so we’ve got to improve that.
“We had chances, especially in the second half, and the team didn’t give up. We kept having chances but there’s times that the ball doesn’t want to go in and that’s something you can’t fight.
“We hit the post as well and we just feel like we’re unlucky. It’s a bit frustrating but we just need to keep our head up and concentrate on the next game.”
Arsenal host West Bromwich Albion in their final Premier League game of the season, and a point would guarantee a third-place finish - and automatic Champions League qualification.
“It’s so important,” Bellerin said. “We don’t want to play that qualifier so we just need to get the three points on Sunday, secure the place, work hard for it and then we can get that weight off our shoulders next season.”
