Kieran Gibbs injured v Bayern, possible hamstring

Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs was forced to leave the field early against Bayern.

Arsenal have been forced into an early change against Bayern Munich with Kieran Gibbs injured.

The left-back was substituted in the 30th minute and replaced by Nacho Monreal with the score at 0-0.

Gibbs had been solid early on, completing 80 per cent of his passes, while making one tackle and one interception.

Monreal while a Spanish international is coming of criticism from a poor performance away at Anfield which saw his side ship five, and is up against Arjen Robben.

Gary Neville stated via his commentary position that Gibbs' injury appeared to be a hamstring problem, while he was able to walk off the pitch, goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny indicated to the bench they Gunners needed to make a change straight away.

Arsenal had earlier missed a glorious chance to take the lead when Mesut Ozil shot a penalty straight at Manuel Neuer.
