Arsenal Caretaker is hopin for a win against Mancity at Emirates Stadium
The Gunners have not enjoyed any victory in their home since early October, and they are set to host the 2018 EPL Champions on Sunday in North London.
The fans booed them after a woeful loss to Brighton in their last Home game, meanwhile their last home Premier League victory was against Bournemouth in early October.
Hector Bellerin admits that the Gunners had given “100 per cent” against the Seagulls, but another poor result against Man City will only add the sense if discontent in north London after five winless run at Emirates Stadium in all competitions.
The Interim boss said, “It’s the right of the fans to be this way.”
“Of course I want them to be with us and I know how much it means to the players, and I can see sometimes when it happens they can go a little bit down.
“But that’s something I will talk to them about. They already know about it but I will try to prepare them for it and when it happens.
“But I think when we play City at home, the fans know it will be a very tough game and will be with us regardless.
“I want to make sure I respect the decisions and voice of the fans. In my opinion they are the club and we try to do the best we can for them. We try to respect them and make them know we are doing this.
“I hope they have seen that in the last fortnight.”
The Swedish caretaker, who take over from the former PSG boss Unai Emery, has thus far won just one of his four matches a the helm, warned there was no quick fix to the malaise.
“I am a fan, too, and I want Arsenal back winning trophies, but as I say this won’t happen overnight,” he said.
“Of course, there are things to fix now and that we can do better. I have a list of about 10-15 things we need to urgently get right, but you can’t do all those things at once.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal sits 9th in the EPL table, their game against Manchester City on Sunday evening at Emirates Stadium will decide if they will go up or low, also if they will put their winless home game to an end.
