Watch: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's Weird, Petulant Strop Before Bayern's Fifth Goal

Watch: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's Weird, Petulant Strop Before Bayern's Fifth Goal

Arsenal's latest risible Champions League defeat has come tonight: a 5-1 reversal against Bayern Munich means they have now lost their first-leg of the last 16 round for six straight seasons.

After the game, Arsene Wenger told BT Sport that his side "mentally collapsed" following the forced withdrawal of Laurent Koscielny through injury. It was 1-1 when the French defender left the field; ten minutes later it was 4-1.

Arsenal were utterly useless in the second-half, and looked a team bereft of leadership and unity: they spent most of the second period gesticulating in anger at each other, with Mesut Ozil a particularly pained on-looker.

As if 4-1 wasn't bad enough, Arsenal contrived to concede a fifth before the end. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was caught dallying on the ball in midfield, and a couple of Bayern passes later, Thomas Muller had the ball in the net.

After the concession of the goal - which was pretty much his fault - Oxlade-Chamberlain threw this really weird, petulant strop.

RTE discussed this after the game, and Didi Hamann's analysis was extremely strong:

He's trying to fool the manager and the fans into thinking that he is trying.

Strong words from Didi....fair?
