Thomas Muller insists that Bayern Munich's loss to Arsenal on the night will drive them on to play better in future.

Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Muller has admitted that narrowly scraping through to the Champions League quarter-finals by losing 2-0 at home to Arsenal will motivate the club in future.

Muller said that things have been going so well for Bayern lately that such a defeat asks questions, but that in the long run losing might turn out to be positive.

"We're through, so the end result is a positive one, even if the result on the night wasn't exactly what we'd hoped for," UEFA.com quotes Muller as saying.

"To lose such an important game 2-0 at home throws up a lot of questions, especially in this fantasy world we've been living in for the past few months. In that respect, maybe it's not such a bad thing because it will prompt us to think more about ourselves as a team.

"We had a few good spells tonight and really should have scored. In fact, we didn't play that badly at all, but the fact that we conceded a second goal towards the end and had to endure a nervous last five minutes or so shows that something obviously went wrong."

Muller has scored 16 goals in 30 appearances for Bayern this season.
