Arsene Wengers side are third in the Premier League table, three points behind their North London rivals Tottenham with two games left of the season.Spurs kick off at 1:30pm against Southampton on Super Sunday, and should they lose, Arsenal would go equal on points with them if they beat fourth-placed Manchester City in the 4pm match. Bellerin, who was the only Arsenal player to be a part of the PFA Team of the Year, feels that although third is the realistic target for the rest of the season, second is by no means out of the question. Pick your team Aguero? Ozil? De Bruyne? Pick your Fantasy Six-a-Side team for the chance to win £10,000 For us, its important to finish third, or even second, he exclusively told Sky Sports.Obviously, as a team we want to finish as high as we can, and in a good moment to be ready for next season. Weve got to start with these three points at the Etihad and the team is really focused on that. Bellerin feels it would make for a better end to the season if Arsenal can finish above Tottenham in the league The Spain international admits that finishing the season above Spurs in the table would be satisfying for the players and the fans if they can achieve it.As an Arsenal player, there is always that motivation [to beat Tottenham], he said.Its something the fans would probably be looking forward to. As players, we need to fight for it as well.It doesnt only depend on us of course. We know they have their games to play and have to win them as well so well do our end of the job and were going to hope for the best. Bellerin does not feel Arsene Wenger deserves the criticism he has received this season Bellerin, who has made 34 Premier League appearances during the 2015/16 campaign, also feels manager Arsene Wenger does not deserve the criticism that he gets despite a disappointing season where Arsenal cannot win a trophy.He explained: Every single manager can have a good season or a bad one but at the end of the day its us the players who have to get on with the job.You cannot blame one person or 11, you just need to look at the club or the people to see whats missing, and once you get the right answer, you need to perform on the pitch.You can see the interview in full on Super Sunday - Manchester City v Arsenal - from 3.30pm on Sky Sports 1.

Calais Campbell Jersey .S District Court against Major League Baseball, the Office of the Commissioner and his own union, the MLBPA. . Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he believes there is very little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the off-season. "I dont see anything that we need to add. We just have to get better," Carroll said. BOSTON -- It resembles the symbol for infinity: a sideways S that Kara Goucher, Molly Huddle and other elite U.S. athletes suddenly are sporting on biceps, wrists and shins.The tattoos are temporary. But the campaign they represent is an all-out attempt to permanently purge competitive athletics of doping.People are getting the impression that everyones dirty, Goucher, a top-ranked marathoner based in Boulder, Colorado, told The Associated Press. We need to build the sport back up in a positive light.Thats the goal of the Clean Sport Collective , a new anti-doping initiative making a splash on social media.It launched this month with an aggressive campaign on Facebook, Twitter and other platforms. Olympians and amateurs alike have been publicly pledging to live, train and compete clean -- totally free of banned performance-enhancing drugs -- and taking selfies aimed at both inspiring and shaming track-and-field competitors, swimmers, cyclists, triathletes and others.Significantly, their bully pulpit is getting a boost from the corporate world: Brooks Running, Oiselle, Skechers and other companies have signed on as partners.Shanna Sparks Burnette, a former Division I collegiate runner, co-founded the Collective to get the focus off the cheaters and back onto athletes committed to drug-free achievement, whether at an Olympics or a local 5K.We really wanted to make a positive impact and change the narrative to celebrate the brands and all of the amazing and inspiring people who are doing it the right way, she said. The mentality is `win at all costs -- do whatever you can do to get ahead. As a society of people, we need to not do that to each other.Its been an especially tough year on the doping front.Russias track and field federation remains barred from international competition, and all but one member of the team was forced to sit out the Rio Olympics after independent investigators appointed by the World Anti-Doping Agency issued a damning report into widespread use of banned substances.Kenya, too, has been caught up in dozens of offenses implicating dopers who robbed clean athletes of winnings and glory. Last month, former Chicago and Boston Marathon champion Rita Jeptoo had her doping ban doubled to four years and was stripped of her Boston title from 2014, when shed been hailed as a hero for winning the iconic races first running since the deadly 2013 finish line bombings.Huddle, a two-time Olympian, said its gotten to the point wherre she wonders about some of the runners who outkick her in international competition. Leonard Fournette Jersey. Sports are supposed to be inspiring to people watching them, but theres so much cynicism implanted now, said Huddle, who wore the Collectives tattoo on the back of her hand while finishing third at this months TCS New York City Marathon, her debut at the 26.2-mile distance.The upstate New York native, who now lives and trains in Providence, Rhode Island, is calling for a one-strike-youre-out approach to the doping scourge -- a lifetime ban, not just a brief suspension, for those who test positive once for a banned substance.That would put the fear in the back of an athletes mind: `What if I get caught? she said. Right now theres just not enough risk.The Clean Sport Collective means business. Pro athletes who take the pledge promise to donate $25,000 to the nonprofit if they ever test positive. Those opting for the extra step of certification have to get bloodwork and a biological passport that attests theyre drug-free.Corporate partners, likewise, commit to sponsor and invest in clean athletes only. And athletes of all abilities are using the hashtag #cleansportco to post about their vows.To Kevin Rutherford, CEO of Nuun Life, a Seattle-based sports hydration and energy company, that makes sense for both the finish line and the bottom line.There are very few brands that are saying something outwardly. I just think weve got to take a stand and say we wont stand for it -- well only work with clean athletes, he said. Theres been scandal after scandal. Its talked about, it hits the headlines, and then it goes away. How do we make it a conversation, a movement? How do we make doping the smoking of sports?Jesse Williams, global sports marketing manager at Brooks Running, said contracts for the elite athletes he sponsors all contain a clause forbidding the use of performance-enhancing drugs.If we dont hold our athletes to the highest standard, were not moving the sport forward, he said. If theres no punishment for the crime, whats the incentive to stop doing it?Huddle hopes the sport can clean up its act.Amazing still does exist, she said, and clean athletes are still getting it done.---Follow Bill Kole on Twitter at .
