Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has taken to social media to send a message to fans after his equalising goal at Stamford Bridge.
The Gunners drew 2-2 with Chelsea in a dramatic game that saw them play over an hour with 10 men after defender David Luiz was shown red on his return to Stamford Bridge.
Jorginho made no mistake from the spot and it looked as though it would be a long evening for Mikel Arteta’s men.
However, a second-half fight back ensured that they had something to show for their efforts.
Gabriel Martinelli pulled Arsenal level for the first time when he broke from a Chelsea corner. N’Golo Kante’s slip allowed the youngster to carry the ball almost 80 yards before slotting it past Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Chelsea thought that they had won the game, when Cesar Azpilicueta turned in a corner with just six minutes remaining on the clock, but the Gunners came back again when Bellerin’s left-footed strike found the bottom corner of the net in the 87th minute.
The Arsenal captain has since take to Instagram to show his delight at the goal and the fighting spirit on show.
“Always happy to score against these lot… But what truely made me happy, was everyone fighting for their lives on that pitch. Big well done to the team tonight,” he wrote.
He was not alone in his praise for the team spirit on the pitch with head coach Mikel Arteta also delighted.
“The spirit they showed, the character, the fight and the leadership as well was there because you have to really stand up,” he said in hs post-match press conference.
“I asked them that when someone makes a mistake – it can happen in football, someone has to take a red card – what cannot happen is that after we don’t stand up for him and every single did it with belief as well.”
