Thomas Muller takes a cheeky swipe at Arsenal after Bayern Munich’s win over Chelsea in the first leg of the UCL round of 16.
Bayern Munich continued their reign of terror against teams from London in the Champions League with a 3-0 victory over Chelsea on Tuesday night. The hero of the night for the German side was the same man that orchestrated their demolition of Tottenham in the group stages; Serge Gnabry.
While the first half remained goalless, Gnabry opened the floodgates in the 51st minute thanks to an exquisite cut back from Robert Lewandowsky. He would score another goal just 3 minutes later before Lewandowski got his name on the scoresheet himself in the 76th minute.
After the match, Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller poked fun at Arsenal, the club Gnabry played for before eventually finding his way to the Bavarian side.

Serge Gnabry has scored 5 champions league goals this season and all of them have come in London. This is the same amount that Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has scored in London this season and more than Nicolas Pepe has scored in the entire campaign.
After the game, Sky Germany asked Bayern forward Muller:
‘Serge Gnabry has scored in his last six games in London. That’s crazy, right?’
‘Yeah, Arsenal are perhaps asking themselves that! ‘I’m happy he is scoring so much in London now and not five years ago, because if that were the case, he probably wouldn’t be with us now.’

Chelsea have an uphill task in the 2nd leg after the 3-0 decimation. To make matters worse, they will travel to the Allianz Arena without Jorginho, who picked a booking for dissent, and Marcos Alonso, who received a red card for striking Lewandowski with his arm.
