Bellerin boost

Arsenal might not have enjoyed the start to the season they wanted, but they’ve had good news in the form of recent comments made by Hector Bellerin.

The young Spaniard has been linked with a return to Barcelona this year, having impressed for Arsene Wenger’s side in the Premier League.

However, despite the obvious pull of the Catalans, the right-back told how he wasn’t thinking about a departure from the Emirates Stadium and was even happy that he had left Barca back in 2011.

"It has paid off. I am very happy with the decision I made," Bellerin said - as relayed by the Daily Express.

"It was hard, but I always say the train comes just once and you either take it or not.

"I took it and I am very happy with the opportunity Arsenal have given me and very happy to be in the position I am in today.

"I’ve always said the reason I came to Arsenal is because I want to stay here and I am not thinking about going anywhere else."

Neville's Twitter antics

Meanwhile, Gunners fans have reacted angrily to a Twitter post made by Gary Neville, surprise, surprise.

The Manchester United legend tweeted that he liked Diego Costa - the man at the centre of much controversy after Arsenal’s loss to Chelsea at the weekend - and he was soon chastised for doing so by many of the north London club’s followers.

Keown on Costa

Last but not least, Gunners legend Martin Keown has weighed in on the Costa debate, claiming that he would love to square up against the striker.

The former centre-back, known for being a player who didn’t suffer fools readily, said he would love to 'beam' Costa back to his era and show him what was what. We’re right behind you, Martin.
