Bellerin on bouncing back from Monaco.

It was important we responded, says Bellerin.

Ahead of the clash at the Emirates, we reported Hector Bellerin saying they would respond with a win over Everton on Sunday and they did.

The Gunners ran out 2-0 winners on Sunday when they faced Roberto Martinez's side. Olivier Giroud and Tomas Rosicky secured the win for the Gunners and right-back Bellerin gave his take on their performance against the Merseyside club.

On the win, the 19-year-old told "It was a hard game today. It was important to get the win to bounce back and I’m glad that the team gave everything and we got the win."

He continued: "It was really important for everyone. The fans deserved the win today after the performance on Wednesday and it was also important for us to get back on a run of winning ways.

"It was a really, really important win and it was important the team got it."

Regarding what the team can achieve, he replied: "We just need to push as hard as we can. We’re playing for points so we need to push as hard as we can in all the competitions.

"We have faith to play Monaco away. The same way they can score three goals, we can as well so we don’t think we’ve lost there yet. We just need to be together and push for the best."
