Bellerin: ‘We’ll win the Cup for Wenger’

Arsenal full back Hector Bellerin has told the world that he is hoping to lift the League Cup this afternoon, and they want to do it for manager Arsene Wenger.

Despite having so much success in his career, winning three Premier League titles and an incredible seven FA Cups, Arsene Wenger is let to taste success in the League Cup.

Now, the Arsenal right back Bellerin has declared that he and his team mates will use that as an extra incentive to win the cup this afternoon.

“We should do it for him,” Bellerin told BBC Radio 5 live.

“The boss has been here for more than 20 years and everyone knows he hasn’t won this competition yet, so it’s another incentive for us.”

Arsenal face Premier League leaders Manchester City in this afternoons Wembley showpiece event. City are currently 15 points clear of nearest rivals Liverpool at the top of the Premier League, and are in the last 16 of the Champions League.

They had been tipped to win an unprecedented Quadruple, but saw those dreams shattered on Monday when League 1 Wigan sensationally knocked them out of the FA Cup with a 1-0 win.

Speaking of today’s opponents, Bellerin said: “They’re a team that had everything to play for but everyone is beatable, even the best teams in the world.

“Their performances have been great and they have a great team. They have a good defence now too which was one of the things previously that was lacking.

“They have a great team overall but it can be done. If it can be done by Wigan, it can be done by us.

“We have great players too and new players who have come in – we feel stronger than ever.”

The game is live on Sky Sports Football at 16:30 GMT.
