Arsenal full back, Hector Bellerin said the players are determined to win this year’s League Cup for their manager, Arsene Wenger. The Frenchman has been at the club for over 20 years and has never won the League Cup – the only domestic trophy missing from his collections.

“We should do it for him,” Bellerin told BBC Radio 5 live.

“The boss has been here for more than 20 years and everyone knows he hasn’t won this competition yet, so it’s another incentive for us.”

The Gunners take on Manchester City in this year’s final in what would be both clubs first-ever meeting between in a major final. The Spanish defender admits their opponent on the day are a good side, but not unbeatable.

“They’re a team that had everything to play for but everyone is beatable, even the best teams in the world,” he continued.

“Their performances have been great and they have a great team. They have a good defence now too which was one of the things previously that was lacking.

“They have a great team overall but it can be done. If it can be done by Wigan, it can be done by us.

“We have great players too and new players who have come in – we feel stronger than ever.”
