Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin believes Arsenal must start the season aggressively if they are to have any chance of keeping up with Manchester City and Chelsea.

Last season the Gunners got off to a shaky start managing just two wins from their first eight games and the 20-year-old Spaniard who has now established himself in Arsene Wenger’s team is warning his teammates that they cannot afford another slow start to the season.

“We are all really excited, especially after the way we finished last year by winning the FA Cup,” the Spaniard said. “It was such a big boost for us to keep doing well.

“We didn’t do that great at the beginning of last season but we showed by the end how we can perform, that we have great players and we were really doing well as a team. So we just need to keep that momentum up for the new season and start on the right foot.

“It will be really important to start strong, to let people know that we have the same way of playing last season and can get the same results.

“We want people to know that we will be aggressive and that we are coming to fight for the title.”
