Rio Ferdinand has given his thoughts on the performance from Arsenal which saw them lose 5-1 in miserable fashion on Wednesday night.

Arsene Wenger’s men appeared to be giving the German side a run for their money after Alexis Sanchez managed to level the score at 1-1 heading into half-time.

However, a dramatic collapse from Arsenal following Laurent Koscielny’s substitution due to an injury early in the second half saw Bayern Munich run riot.

According to former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand, lack of guts cost the Gunners yet again.

“Arsenal got dismantled in the second half.” Ferdinand told BT Sport

“It looked like they may come away with a positive result, a draw, maximum a 2-1 defeat.

“I didn’t see 5-1 at half-time. They went into overdrive into the second half and Arsenal couldn’t deal with them.

“Laurent Koscielny going off was a huge, huge factor. As soon as he went off, two goals came quickly.

“They looked spineless, that’s the word for me.

“There’s no fight, no aggression and I didn’t even see anyone giving someone a rollocking during the game.

“You want to see someone with fire in their belly to say ‘listen, come on’ but I don’t see that in this team. That’s the disheartening thing for me.”
