Hector Bellerin was in philosophical mood after our 1-1 draw with Slavia Prague on Thursday night.
While unhappy to have conceded a last-gasp equaliser, our right back believes we showed more than enough to head to the Czech Republic confident of getting a result.
"Well, obviously it’s really disappointing not to win this game when you get the feeling throughout the game that you should have won that," he said.
"It’s difficult to take, but at the end of the day there’s still everything to play for and it’s 1-1. We know how they play and I think we had really good moments in the game.
"We broke down their pressure and we created chances, so there’s nothing that worries me for us to go to Prague and do the job there.
"You can blame it on anything you want, but at the end of the day it comes down to the goals we score and the goals we concede, and I think throughout the game we put ourselves in situations that we could have taken the lead, but this is football," he added.
"You’ve got to keep trying, you’ve got to keep trying, and on another game we will score them and today wasn’t the day. I think also when you put yourself 1-0 up there’s better ways of managing the game in the way we did and as players we take the responsibility.
"We know when we make mistakes and at the same time, I think it’s a very positive performance when you look to go away next Thursday. They’re a team that makes things difficult for every single team that they’ve played against, and I think I felt comfortable on the ball and I felt like the team did all the right things that we were asked to do and there’s still 90 minutes to play for. We’re ready for it."
