Theo Walcott says Arsenal have themselves to blame for their Champions League elimination.

Theo Walcott says Arsenal have themselves to blame for their Champions League elimination.

Walcott, 23, insists the Gunners’ 3-1 home loss to Bayern Munich condemned them — despite Wednesday’s 2-0 win in Germany.

He said: “Our mistakes in the first leg cost us. You can’t do that at the top level, but you have to give the guys credit for our away performance.

“Bayern are a top-class team but we went out with pride, worked hard and for each other. We need that more often.”
