Francis Coquelin spoke to the media following Arsenal's 2-0 win against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night. This is what he said:

on the win…

It is always difficult against Bayern but I thought we started well and we created a big chance with Theo in the first half but we didn’t put it in the net. The second half was always going to be tough but Olivier scored a great goal and after we felt that we could keep the heat on and after the second it was game over.

on ceding possession to Bayern…

We knew Bayern would have a lot of the ball, but in the recent games against the big teams we have not had as much possession and counter-attacked. It worked well again here and everyone defended really well and we didn’t concede any goals, so I am really pleased with the performance.

on the turnaround from losing to Olympiacos…

In the first two games we didn’t perform and we knew we had to win here to stay in the competition. We have been doing really well in the league and we had to do that in the Champions League too, and we have done that so we have to carry on in that way.
