Hector Bellerin urges Arsenal supporters to remain calm

Arsenal have collected just four points from the last 18 on offer in the Premier League, seeing them drop down to sixth place in the table and now seven points off a Champions League spot.

The Gunners still have games in hand to play over the teams above them and Bellerin is more than confident that his side have what it takes to get over the line and keep up their impressive record of competing in Europe’s showpiece competition.

“My message is just to remain calm,” he told the club’s official website. “There are still loads of games to go. I understand that it can be frustrating not to be there at the moment but, as I say, we just need to be together. The team, fans, everyone – the whole of Arsenal has to be together and be positive.

“Hopefully like that we can make it happen. It’s also true that we have a few games in hand, we are a few games behind some of the teams on top of us. But we knew this year it was going to be very competitive. There were six or seven teams that were going to compete for the Champions League spots.

“We knew that it was going to get tough. It was going to be one of the hardest leagues probably in the last few years. We knew it could happen but we still have loads of games for us to recover and make it into the top four. I think it’s just ours for the taking.”
