Arsenal boss  Mikel Arteta has bemoaned Arsenal’s level of the game after they were beaten 1-0 at home to Olympiacos saying that Arsenal are nowhere near the levels expected. His team survived a major scare but qualified to the next round after they won 3-2 in aggregate.

Arsenal had crashed out of the competition in the previous season after being knocked out by the same Olympiacos team. Aubameyang who was left on the bench during the Tottenham win looked wasteful missing a couple of chances to restore confidence to the team.

Mikel Arteta said: “I hope the weekend isn’t still on his mind. We moved on, he started and we expect when he does play he performs at the level he can.
“We had a tough opponent, we knew that, we knew that they weren’t going to give up, so happy to be through but at the same time we have to be fair with ourselves and today we were nowhere near the levels that we have to set ourselves.
“It has been a really demanding week but I don’t think we have to use any excuses we have refreshed the team, we have players that they were fresh, and we know the importance of the competition.”

It was a dreadful performance. Arsenal conceded on the 51 minutes with El-Arabi’s deflected shot gave the visitors the lead. Arsenal didn’t seem to get back into the match but gave themselves over the line to reach the competition quatre finals.
