Bellerin happy to see Arsenal pair Chambers and Gabriel keep clean sheet

Hector Bellerin was thrilled with the performances of central defensive duo Calum Chambers and Gabriel Paulista on Monday night.

The pair replaced usual Arsenal centre-backs Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker as the Gunners drew 0-0 with Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium and right-back Bellerin felt they provided a decent showing against the likes of Christian Benteke, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho.

"I think they had a good game, the fact that we are going home with a clean sheet says a lot," said the Spaniard.

"It is difficult to be thrown into a game like this when you haven't had a lot of game time. I think they did really well, them and the whole team."

Bellerin added: "There were some times when we had trouble getting the ball out from the back, but I think we dealt very well with their front three.

"They had a lot of power up front and the fact we are going home with a clean sheet says a lot."
