Hector Bellerin sends warning to Arsenal about Chelsea FC
The Arsenal star warns the Gunners about Chelsea FC's "very good football"
Hector Bellerin has warned Arsenal that Chelsea FC play “very good football” under their new manager Maurizio Sarri ahead the London derby at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
The Spanish defender was part of the Arsenal team that suffered a 2-0 loss to Manchester City at The Emirates last weekend following goals from Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva.
Arsenal will make the short trip across London to take on FA Cup holders Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening in search of a first win under Unai Emery.
The Blues eased to a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town thanks to goals from summer signing Jorginho, N’Golo Kante and Pedro Rodriguez to seal three points.
Arsenal and Chelsea FC both finished outside the top four last season to miss out on a place in the Champions League in the 2018-19 Premier League campaign.
Bellerin, who has been regularly linked with a move to La Liga side FC Barcelona, warned Arsenal about the threat that Chelsea FC will pose at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
“Every single point is important and going away to Chelsea is always hard,” Bellerin told Arsenal’s website.
“They showed yesterday that they’re a team that play very good football under Sarri, and we’re up for the challenge. We played them in pre-season so we know more or less how they play, so now we have a whole week to prepare and get ready for it.”
Chelsea FC have won the Premier League title in two of the past four seasons under Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.
The Blues were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley last term.
