Hector Bellerin: Arsenal need to start games with a better attitude

Craig Burley cannot wrap his head around why Alexis Sanchez would sign a new deal as Arsenal are trending backwards.
Arsene Wenger discusses his decision to bench Alexis Sanchez, as well as what Arsenal's next step is for the season.

Hector Bellerin has blamed Arsenal's slow start for their defeat against Liverpool and said they need to begin games "with a better attitude."

Much of the blame for Arsenal's first-half performance was laid at manager Arsene Wenger's door after choosing to drop 20-goal top scorer Alexis Sanchez. However, Bellerin said there was more to it than that.

"We're very frustrated with how the game went," Bellerin told Arsenal's official website. "After the tough weeks we've had the team should have gone onto the pitch, motivated and ready from the start.

"In the first half it didn't feel like we were ready and then we went 2-0 down. We got one goal back and had a chance to make it 2-2 but sometimes it's too late.

"We need to realise that it's just not the way to go. We need to push harder, to start the games with a better attitude and just go for it because we showed that when we go for it and want something we can do it.

"It doesn't matter about the other team, when we have the ball and push hard, we can score goals.

"It's up to us to start the games with that desire, that motivation, and then we can get good results."
