Wednesday night was the first time Arsenal have scored six goals in a game since December 2012. According to Kieran Gibbs, the margin of victory was inspired by a half-time chat.

Arsène Wenger’s side led Ludogorets 2-0 at the break, but they were not entirely satisfied with their first-half performance.

“I think to be honest the score only reflected the second-half performance,” Kieran told Arsenal Player. “I thought we were a bit slow out of the blocks.

"Our quality came out in the second half and we came out a different team. We found our groove a bit more in the final third"

“To be fair to them I think they are a good team and they can play. We have got to be careful when we go there in a couple of weeks time, because it will be a tough test for us.

“We spoke at half-time because we wanted to change something. I don't think there was too much wrong, I just felt that we gave the ball away a bit too easily in the first half.

“Our quality came out in the second half and we came out a different team. We found our groove a bit more in the final third. We connected a bit better as a team and the goals came thick and fast in the end.

“That's what we have to do from now on, we want to keep that level of consistency that we showed in the second half, throughout all the games.”
