Arsene Wenger has criticised his side's defensive
performance in their 5-1
drubbing by Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena in the
Champions League this evening.
Arsenal were behind after just eleven minutes when an
unmarked Robert
Lewandowski headed the ball into the back of the net.
The Gunners thought they were level soon afterwards,
but Mesut Ozil saw his
goal ruled out for handball, while Bayern Munich then
doubled their lead in the
29th minute through Thomas Muller.
It was 3-0 on the stroke of half time when David Alaba
surged forward and hit a
neat looping shot which sailed past Petr Cech.
Substitute Arjen Robben lashed home Bayern Munich's
fourth within seconds of
coming on in the 55th minute, though Arsenal did pull
one back in the 69th minute
through Olivier Giroud.
But it was Bayern Munich's night and Muller grabbed his second of the game in
injury time to complete a 5-1 drubbing.
For Wenger, while Bayern Munich deserve credit, Arsenal were well below where
they needed to be defensively.
He told his post-match press conference: "You have to
give credit to Bayern for
their quality, but we made things easy for them.
"We were extremely poor defensively."
Wenger will not give up on reaching the knockout round though, adding: "There is
still a chance to qualify. It's a small chance, but there is
still a real one."
