Bellerín's touching message to Arsenal players, fans ahead of Premier League return

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has called on the players and fans alike to stick together as they try to turn things around following a poor run in recent matches. 

The Gunners host Southampton on Saturday hoping to bounce back from their loss against Leicester in the last Premier League match before the international break. 

Arsenal have not won a single match in the league in since their 1-0 over Bournemouth, drawing twice and losing twice in their last four matches.

Speaking to the club's website, Bellerin, who is making a comeback from a long-term injury stated that they need to move past blaming one another and stop pointing fingers, as that's the only way to get out of the slump. 

"I think it's important as a club, as fans as everything (to know that) being divided is never the way forward. Everyone demands different things everyone demands different changes but I don't think that's the way," 

"I think the (right) way is accepting who we are what we have getting everyone together supporting each other and that the way we can reach our goals,"

"To get together, when things don't go well that the time for us to tap each other in the back and say 'come on', that's what we need, not start pointing fingers and blaming someone for doing this for doing that we are club, we are team we are a family, what we need is to be there for each other," 

The club has also struggled with off-field issues, with the recent case of Granit Xhaka and a section of fans one of the highlights to troubled times. 

In addition, there are growing calls for manager Unai Emery to leave his role following the recent run of poor results.
