Laurent Koscielny has given the reason why Arsenal were unable to prevent the woeful result they recorded on Wednesday night.

The Gunners suffered a 5-1 defeat in the hands of Bayern Munich in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 tie.

They were on level terms with the Bavarians after 45 minutes but the second half saw them crumble and according to Koscielny whose early substitution cost them the game, their lack of coordination caused the loss.

“Yeah, I don’t know", the defender told the official website.

“I think the first half was good – we were deep, like you need to be, and tried not to give them space or opportunities to score.

“It being 1-1 at half-time was good for us but after we conceded the second goal, I think we needed to stay more compact because we had a second leg at home.

“When you can win [there], you need to stay together, defend together with all 11 players and keep this. We didn’t. Bayern played very well – they have some top-class players who can make the difference.”
