Arsenal must now play a second leg against Bayern in March, but the contest is already over.

Granit Xhaka, who has been suspended domestically, returns to the squad as does fit again defender Per Mertesacker.

He was a key figure with 13 goals in 31 games when Bayern became the first German club to win the treble of European, domestic club and league titles and won the Bundesliga with a 19-point margin.

He added: "The performance in first half was good". Still in play, though, is the Champions League quest.

"We play against a Bayern side who for every year the same task is to win the Champions League", Wenger said.

Two goals from Thiago and one apiece from Arjen Robben, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller did for the Gunners in Germany on Wednesday, leading to Rio Ferdinand labelling the away side "spineless".
