TNT Sports commentator Adam Summerton was stunned by a ‘shocking’ moment in the final minutes of Arsenal’s defeat at Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.

Arsenal crashed out of the Champions League after a 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena. The Gunners lost 3-2 on aggregate.

Apart from Gabriel Martinelli wasting a decent chance in the first half, Arsenal never really posed a threat to the German giants.

Similar to Sunday’s defeat to Aston Villa, Bayern upped their game after the break, leaving the Gunners with no answers. However, there was a moment in the final minutes of the game that left Arsenal skipper Martin Odegaard furious.

Odegaard raced through down the right-hand side in the final minutes of the game and was able to test Manuel Neuer at his near post. The Norwegian midfielder’s effort took a deflection off a Bayern defender before Neuer turned the ball past his goal.

Despite the obvious save from the goalkeeper, the linesman awarded Bayern a goal-kick.

The decision left both Ally McCoist and Adam Summerton baffled on TNT Sports.

“He’s not seen it,” McCoist said. “That’s a poor decision, really poor. Neuer gets a left hand on it, we can see it from here and if we can see it, so should the linesman.

“It’s a deflection as well. It’s two corners. Honestly. And he’s looking at it, it comes off the defender and the goalkeeper.”

Summerton added: “That really is quite shocking. And a set piece to defend with two minutes to go. Wow. I mean once, but to miss two!”

Meanwhile, while the result represents a bitter pill to swallow for the Gunners, Arteta will have to pick his squad up quickly ahead of some crucial games in the Premier League.
