'We're family, we need to be there for each other'

Hector Bellerin has stressed the importance of unity as we ready ourselves to return to Premier League action on Saturday.

The right back believes that we will turn things around, as long as everyone is pulling in the same direction.

"I think it’s important as a club, as fans, as everything [to know that] being divided is never the way forward," Bellerin told Arsenal Player. 

"Everyone demands different things, everyone demands different changes, but I don’t think that’s the way. I think the [right] way is accepting who we are, what we have, getting everyone together, supporting each other, and that is the way that we can reach our goals.

"One doing one thing, one doing the other… that’s never going to work, so that [tweet after the Crystal Palace game] was my call for unity in terms of us as a club, as a family, everything that Arsenal is. To get together… when things don’t go well, that is the time for us to tap each other on the back and be like ‘come on, we need to do this better but we’re going to come back on top’. 

"That is what we need, not to start pointing fingers and blaming someone for doing this, for doing that… we’re a club, we’re a team, we’re a family. What we need is to be there for each other.
 
"We are Arsenal Football Club, we always need to be at the top," he added. "Whenever we’re not at the top that means there’s improvement that needs to be done. That’s it, that’s what you get when you play for a big club like Arsenal. There’s no other choice."
