Hector Bellerin sends warning to Chelsea ahead of Arsenal clash
Hector Bellerin looks ahead to Arsenal's clash with Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday
Hector Bellerin has told Chelsea that Arsenal are determined to beat the Blues when they travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League.
The Gunners are preparing to take on their bitter London rivals as they look to get their Premier League campaign back on track.
Arsenal have made something of a stuttering start to the new campaign, with Arsene Wenger’s men have lost two and won two of their opening four games in the top flight.
Chelsea, meanwhile, have been in good form since their surprise loss to Burnley on the opening weekend of the season, with Antonio Conte’s side having won their last three games to move them up to third place in the table.
The Blues also kicked off their Champions League campaign with a 6-0 thrashing of Qarabag at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night, while Arsenal were 3-1 winners over Cologne in their Europa League opener on Thursday.
Bellerin scored Arsenal’s third goal against Cologne on Thursday at The Emirates and has warned Chelsea that the Gunners are getting back to their best.
Bellerin told Arsenal’s website: “I think the win against Bournemouth in the league gave us a lot of confidence and today the win and coming back from [being behind] always gives you that boost.
“We’re going to train hard in these two days coming and then we’re going to be ready for Chelsea at the weekend.”
Arsenal finished fifth in the table last season and beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley.
