Hector Bellerin has warned Chelsea that Arsenal are ready for the defence of their Community Shield crown.

The Gunners take on the Premier League champions in the season’s curtain-raiser at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.

Bellerin managed to become Arsenal’s first-choice right-back in the second half of the season in the absence of Mathieu Debuchy.

And the Spain Under-21 international took to his Instagram page to rally the Arsenal troops ahead of their Community Shield clash.

Bellerin wrote: “Ready for tomorrow.”

Bellerin capped an impressive run of form in the Gunners side with his first Premier League goal against Aston Villa in February before he netted against Liverpool in a 4-1 win at The Emirates in April.

The Gunners youngster has scored two goals in 28 appearances in all competitions for the north London side.
