Hector Bellerin says he’s not giving up hope of a top four finish claiming Arsenal’s rivals are still capable of ballsing things up in the coming months.
Manchester United and Chelsea have both lost two of their last five games in the Premier League as they, like Arsenal, have fallen further behind runaway leaders Manchester City.
Hoping that the trend might continue, and that the Gunners might stop being absolute twaddle as soon as they step outside the confines of the Emirates, the Spaniard struck an optimistic note after the North London derby defeat.
“There are still loads of games and big teams can lose against smaller teams,” Bellerin told the Evening Standard. “It happens every week.
“We have the faith to make the top four and the Champions League next year.
“Every single competition is important. We’ve still got the Carabao Cup here at Wembley, the game against Ostersunds in the Europa League is as important as the ones in the league.”
In a separate conversation with Arsenal.com, the right-back touched on the importance of bouncing back from yet another setback.
“There are loads of points still to play for, so we need to look forward. We can’t just be stuck looking back at this game.
“We need to analyse, need to make sure we don’t make the same mistakes and we’ve still got quite a few games to play. We still need to play some of the big teams in the top six as well, so we’ll see. You never know what can happen in the Premier League.”
