Bellerin: Why I was not happy yesterday

Hector Bellerin has expressed his individual frustration following the Premier League affair with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

At half-time, the Gunners appeared to be heading for a victory after taking a 1-0 lead through an own-goal from Kevin Wimmer.

However, a controversial decision from Mark Clattenburg only five minutes into the second-half saw Harry Kane take an advantage of an opportunity to level the score through a penalty-kick.

The 1-1 draw still leaves Arsenal very much in the title race and extended the team’s unbeaten run in all competitions to 16 games.

Even so, Bellerin, who was in energetic form at right back on Sunday, has revealed he was not happy with the outcome of the derby.

“I’m a bit disappointed with the result because I think the team deserved a bit more than just a draw,” the Spaniard told Arsenal Player.

“We had loads of chances all through the game, especially at the end of the second half. We couldn’t be efficient enough to get another goal back and we need to learn from it.

“I think the team had a good performance defensively and then we knew how to play them in behind, we knew being very direct was going to hurt them but I think we’ve just got to take the positives and look at the next game.”
