Hector Bellerin was as pleased as anyone to have claimed our first Premier League win of the Unai Emery era.
We beat West Ham United 3-1 on Saturday and afterwards, the Spanish defender spoke to Arsenal Media.
“We’ve been working hard now for the last two months, so we knew it was just a question of time,” he told Arsenal.com. “We had two tough games to start after lots of changes at the club. We knew it was a question of time, a question of scoring the chances that we had.
“We still could have been even more efficient, but even though we started behind in the scores, we turned it around and I was very happy with the reaction of the team as well.
“We knew we were playing at home with our crowd, it was a tough team, they’ve had a very good summer window. They’ve signed loads of top players, so even though they were still getting used to each other as well, we knew it was going to be tough.
“I think the score doesn’t show how hard it was on the pitch, but as I said, it was just a question of time because the whole team has been working really hard and really well.”
