Arsenal against Ostersund at the Emirates Stadium should have been a foregone conclusion before the game had even started on Thursday night.

And yet, it was anything but. Arsene Wenger's side went into the second leg with a 3-0 lead on aggregate but found themselves 2-0 down inside 23 minutes.

Simple errors from the Gunners' defence led to both goals, while going forward, they couldn't string more than five passes together.

It was a shambolic display and one that suggested Ostersund had a genuine chance of progressing into the Europe League last 16.

Speaking on BT Sport during the break, Arsenal legend Martin Keown said he was embarrassed for his former side.

"It's almost embarrassing," he said in the video below. "I'm embarrassed watching as a former player never mind how Wenger must be feeling now.

"That's a very important team talk, it's a big week for Arsenal. We're talking about winning the Europa League, but look at that, they're not going to win it on tonight's performance."

Arsenal came out of the traps fast in the second 45 minutes and scored an important goal through the out-of-favour Sead Kolasinac, who fired home emphatically from inside the box.

But despite going through to the next round of the Europa League, Arsenal fans aren't in a forgiving mood and want one player sold immediately following his display: Calum Chambers.

Chambers made mistakes for both of Ostersund's goals - he played the final touch for the opener - so it's no wonder Gooners have had enough.
