‘It was hard… we were really creative’

Hector Bellerin

 Hector Bellerin spoke to the media following Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Sunday:

on the game…We knew it was going to be a hard game but we also knew if we could score at the beginning of the game then it would be easier. That is what we did and we were really creative in the first half. We probably dropped a little bit after that in the second half because we gave them a lot of chances.

on the three points… It was very important. We need to try and win every game and we knew this was going to be hard. They play good football but I think the team was on the job and we did well.

on getting the goals… I think it is important to boost the confidence of the team because when you don’t score goals in a few games then sometimes it can get to your head, but it was a great response by the team and it gave us a lot of confidence to play relaxed and get a win.

on Leicester City… I think for us, every single game is crucial. We need to think game by game, it does not matter [who you play] and you need to get the three points. Obviously it is going to be one of the most important ones but you need to keep playing like that in every game.
