Arsenal defender Bellerin: Champions League qualification our target

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin says they can clinch Champions League qualification after victory over Norwich City.

A resounding 4-0 win over Norwich on Wednesday night continued their turnaround in form as a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang brace, a first of the season for Granit Xhaka and a debut goal for Cedric Soares condemned the sorry Canaries to another defeat.

"For us that has been the goal since the beginning of the season," Bellerin said, referring to Champions League qualification. "And obviously coming back from lockdown that has always been our goal.

"It wasn't the best of starts to our Premier League return, but we have been working really hard through the whole of quarantine - not just physically but tactically as well.

"I think we just needed those games to get all those new concepts onto the pitch. I think slowly we are getting there and we are improving."
