“We shut some mouths”- Bellerin.

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin said the Gunners “shut some mouths” with their 2-0 derby win over city rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.The Gunners were heavily tagged underdogs before the derby against rivals Spurs following a 3-1 loss to Manchester City in the previous game which also left them trailing in the Premier League title.But Arsene Wenger’s team restored bragging rights in North London with their best performance of the season, and Bellerin said it should silence some of the team’s critics.Bellerin told Arsenal’s website: “There’s always a lot of talk but I think it was one of those games where we showed what we could do. We shut some mouths as well,” Bellerin told the Arsenal website. “There are people who talk a lot and now, after watching that game at home, they’ll be thinking that these guys have a chance.”It was Arsenal’s most complete performance in a long time as they combined effective pressing off the ball with solid defending and clinical finishing — converting both of their only two shots on target. And Bellerin admitted the team has to find a way of performing like that consistently.“Of course. That’s what we’re trying to do. Sometimes, for different reasons, we haven’t been able to do it, but this is how we set the bar and show what potential we have,” he said. “That’s what we’ve got to work hard to do every single week, week in, week out.”
