Hector Bellerin insists Arsenal ARE improving and whole squad are behind under-fire Unai Emery

HECTOR BELLERIN says the Arsenal dressing room is fully behind by boss Unai Emery.

Sections of Gunners fans have started to voice their displeasure on social media towards the Spaniard, who succeeded Arsene Wenger in May 2018.

There were also thousands of empty seats at the Emirates for the 3-2 Europa League victory over Vitoria SC on Thursday.

Frustration stems from the back-end of last season when Arsenal missed out on the Champions League by a point and were then smashed by Chelsea 4-1 in the Europa League final in Baku.

Bellerin says fans must show patience towards Emery, who enjoyed success in both Spain and France.

The Spanish right-back, 24, said: This team has evolved a lot since the beginning of last season. When the board sign a manager like Unai, they know its going to be part of a process.

He has his ideas and hes done so well at Sevilla, Valencia and Paris so everyone trusts in the manager.

Sometimes things dont go your way like against Vitoria when youre 2-1 down with ten minutes to go but then its all about turning it around.

If you take out from last year those last three games for example, it would have been a very positive season.

The manager is getting to know us every single day and for us its about going forward with our heads up.

If selected against Crystal Palace today, it will represent Bellerins fourth appearance since returning to the first-team last month.

He has undertaken fashion catwalks for Louis Vuitton in Paris, appeared in the British Vogue magazine, uploaded regular video blogs and publicly expressed his love of the environment.

Bellerin underwent knee surgery in January after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament and though he found it hard being sidelined, he said he used the time wisely to take his mind off football.

He added: When something you love so much and, for whatever reason, somethings stopping you from doing it, theres no worse thing than that.

But while the process has been really hard, Ive also taken a lot of positives out if it.

It wasnt the end of the world. Obviously, it was really hard but I had my family and friends with me.

“When life takes things from you, it gives you other positives and its always important to look at the brighter side.

Now in the last few months when you are back on the training pitch, you just cant wait to be in the squad.

Im ready whenever the manager decides to play me. Im feeling better every day. These kinds of injuries are not just about making sure the knee is solid.

Its about getting back out there on the pitch. You need to get used to the traffic again. It comes by getting kicked and getting confident with my knee.
