We let ourselves down - Kean

Blackburn manager Steve Kean admits that his side "let themselves down" in a 7-1 Premier League thrashing away to Arsenal.

Arsenal took an early lead through Van Persie's tap-in but Morten Gamst Pedersen's free-kick levelled it before the Gunners ran away with the game as Van Persie completed his hat-trick, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain added two more with a goal apiece for Mikel Arteta and Thierry Henry.

The defeat was Blackburn's 14th of the season and sees them fall to 19th in the Premier League.
