Bellerin: ‘Teams are not beating us, it’s us losing the games’

Arsenal had looked set to take a 1-0 lead to the Czech Republic next week after Nicolas Pepe put them ahead in the 86th minute.

But, deep into injury time, Tomer Holes headed home from a corner to ensure Slavia have the advantage going into the second leg.

It capped off a frustrating night for Arsenal, who squandered four clear-cut chances before Pepe finally put them ahead.

And afterwards Bellerin admitted that he and his team-mates only had themselves to blame after slipping to a 1-1 draw.

“I have to say, I felt like we had the game under control for the whole time but the last five minutes,” said Bellerin.

“We had chances to score, we get to 1-0 in the 85th minute, and then it’s about us controlling and managing the game.

“We put ourselves in situations that we shouldn’t be at that stage and it has happened to us before.

“It is something that is in our hands and I’ve said it before – teams are not beating us, it’s us losing the games.”

The positive for Arsenal is that they created four great chances against Slavia, despite not being at their best last night.
