A statement from Arsenal said: "We are aware of the problems our travelling supporters had on Wednesday night and in particular their late arrival at the game.

"We are very disappointed for our fans that they had a difficult evening but the circumstances were beyond our control. We have launched an investigation to work out precisely what happened."
