Hector Bellerin had to be at his best to help Arsenal keep a clean sheet against Leicester City. The defender spoke to the media after the goalless draw at King Power Stadium.
on the performance…
The end product wasn’t good enough. We just need to keep going, keep playing with the same mentality we have been playing with and then hopefully we will see an improvement.

on a strong defensive performance…
I think there’s a lot of solidarity at the back and we got a lot of help from the midfield players because they defended well from the front. Sometimes it’s about starting from the back, having a strong team at the back and then being efficient up front. We weren’t efficient enough, but I’m sure that once we get into our rhythm, the goals will come.
on whether Arsenal will get better in the coming weeks…
Definitely. There’s a lot of players who have missed pre-season after coming back late from the Euros. Every single player we have can compete on the pitch. Santi started and then when Mesut came on he created a lot of chances too. That’s the same with Olivier. It’s nice to have them back and as soon as the whole team is back, the performances will get better.
More polls to come later in the season!
