Europa League Arsenal stun AC Milan at San Siro

It didn't matter too much in the grand scheme of things as they qualified on aggregate thanks to the 3-0 away win achieved in the first leg, but the 2-1 loss is the latest example of Arsenal's display not matching their lovely kit.

Following a tumultuous week for the London club, which saw the Gunners lose to both Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion, the Reds were in need of a desperate win as they headed to the San Siro.

Under-fire Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was relieved after his side's impressive 2-0 Europa League last 16, first-leg victory at AC Milan on Thursday (March 8), following a "nightmare" week. "He gave them their identity back, as well as a sense of belonging".

Arsenal quickly wrestled their way back into the game, their passing and movement causing uncertainty in the Milan defence and their solidity seeing the home attack quickly run out of ideas.

While Mkhitaryan struggled to make an impact in the Premier League for United last season, he scored six goals - including one in the final - as the Old Trafford club won the Europa League.

While Miles was still in high school, she also performed in Diamond Head Theater's production of Carousel. A GoFundMe page has been set up to collect donations in support of Miles and her family.

It meant Arsenal arrived at the San Siro at arguably the lowest point of Wenger's 22-year reign, but produced an improved performance to inflict a first defeat in 13 games on the Italians.

He should have scored a second, clipping the crossbar shortly before Ramsey doubled the lead.

Arsenal fans aren't going into their Europa League clash with AC Milan tonight with any optimism, it seems.

Under the guidance of former midfield stalwart Gennaro Gattuso, Milan have expereicened an upturn in form which has seen them go 12 games unbeaten. The Italians had gone 10 games without losing between these defeats.

Arsenal will be hoping there are many more goals and assists to come from Ozil.
