'We must be realistic, Rome wasn't built in a day'

Having won nine matches in a row, optimism is understandably rife among Arsenal players, staff and the fans.

However, Hector Bellerin is not getting carried away. He knows we are still at the start of a process and there may be bumps in the road on the way to where we want to be.

"We need to be realistic, Rome wasn’t built in a day," Bellerin said. "There’s loads of things that are changing for us, not just as a team but as a football club so the most important thing is to believe in the way that we want to play. 

"We’re a team now that play from the back, we probably risk it a bit more than before, but for us it is important for our fans and for everyone around us to believe in this idea that we have. 

"At the beginning it is going to be harder, but the more we train it, the more we work at it, the better we are going to get at it. 

"For us it is about getting used to the system, be a team, be competitive and have this winning mentality, take it to the next level and become the team that the manager has in mind. 

"I’m sure with the help of the fans and everyone at the club we will be able to do it."
