Arsenal full back Hector Bellerin has opened up on a difficult season with the Gunners, claiming that he hopes an FA Cup victory can fix an otherwise fragmented season in north London.
Arsenal's fifth placed finish in the Premier League this season is their lowest finishing position in the top flight since the 1995/96 campaign, and Bellerin admits that times have been difficult, especially with the abuse from frustrated fans.
"But, whatever way, it is part of football and I understand. I am a football fan, I've watched football my whole life. When my favourite team didn't do well I'd get angry.
"I need to man up and deal with it."
"You get the perks of football and the cons. That's one of the things that's going to happen. When you're angry you can say something you don't mean. Everyone's got their opinion and sometimes it's going to hurt."
Despite what many would consider an underwhelming performance in the Premier League, Bellerin claims that winning the FA Cup will win the Arsenal faithful back over, but a very tough task against Antonio Conte's league-winning Chelsea awaits.
"In the league, they deserve to be winners. They've been consistent and played some great football. But this is a final, one game and it's a competition we love.
"We're going to grab our chance because we need to make amends for the rest of the season and hopefully go home with the FA Cup. The fans will be happy and we'll be happy as players. When you're a kid thinking of being a footballer you're thinking about lifting trophies."
Arsenal take on Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday afternoon, with Conte's side aiming to complete the double.
