Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski was
delighted to get off to a winning start in the Champions League at
Montpellier on Tuesday night, but he has warned his team-mates that they
must perform better in their remaining group games.
Podolski netted Arsenal's equaliser
at the Stade de la Mosson shortly before Gervinho grabbed what proved to
be the winner inside 20 minutes.
French side had the better of the closing stages though, and Podolski
feels Arsenal were guilty of taking their foot off the gas in the second
'I think we played well in the first half. In the second half, we weren’t as good as we didn’t do enough up front,
Podolski's German international
team-mate Per Mertesacker was also critical of Arsenal's performance,
claiming they were lucky to win and that Montpellier deserved something
from the game.
