Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain left Munich with his head held high on Tuesday night - despite Arsenal's elimination from the Champions League.

Lukas Podolski's goal kept the Gunners in their last-16 tie until the end, but Bayern prevailed 3-1 on aggregate after a 1-1 draw on the night.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was arguably Arsenal's stand-out performer at the Allianz Arena and, although disappointed to see another European adventure end, the England international took positives from the tie.

There are definitely positives for us to take from this performance and we can take that into the league and into the rest of the FA Cup [campaign]

"It's a very similar feeling to last year [when Arsenal went out despite winning at Bayern]," he told Arsenal Player. "We didn't win here this year but I think we can take pride out of the performance to come here and get a 1-1 draw.

"It isn't what we wanted or needed but I think we put in a really good shift and worked really hard all over the pitch. We were up against a really tough Bayern side. I think we did well and we can hold our heads high.

"We're just gutted that we couldn't do enough. Maybe on another day our final ball could have been a bit better and we could have found some more cutting edge, but it wasn't to be.

"There are definitely positives for us to take from this performance and we can take that into the league and into the rest of the FA Cup [campaign]."

Arsenal's next game is a big one - a Premier League derby at Tottenham on Sunday - and Oxlade-Chamberlain expects the squad to be ready.

"Football's about picking yourself up from defeats and bouncing back," he said. "That's what we've got to do now. We've got a really good game coming up on Sunday, one that all the fans want to win and we want to win.

"It's a massive game for not only the Club and for the city and the rivalry, it's also a big opportunity for us to stake a claim on the league, so we'll be looking to do that and bounce back. We'll get over this as quick as we can."
