AC Milan v Arsenal

Mkhitaryan It's a pleasure to play alongside Ozil Mkhitaryan It's a pleasure to play alongside Ozil

Arsenal have taken a 2-0 lead into half-time during tonight's Europa League clash with AC Milan... thanks to a stunning pair of assists from Mesut Ozil.

Thankfully for Arsene Wenger, his charges were able to record a comfortable victory on the road, courtesy of first-half goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey in Milan, leading Xhaka to hail the team's character after the win.

And Wenger, who host Milan at the Emirates next Thursday, was pleased with his side's response to their nightmare run of form. Here are five things we learned from the 2-0 win. "We showed togetherness today, we showed spirit and a lot of character".

"Like a boxing match, when you are half knocked-down and another (punch) comes again, and that's what happened to us".

Arsenal are 13 points adrift of the Champions League places in the Premier League and are pinning their hopes on winning the Europa League to qualify for Europe's elite club competition. "But we want to keep our focus and finish the job next week".

Arsenal started brightly at the San Siro but were lucky not to concede a penalty when Hakan Calhanoglou stayed on his feet despite appearing to have been fouled by onrushing Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina.

Appropriately enough, it is sitting alongside an example of each of these on Aston's stand at the Geneva Motor Show . We've told a few of its secrets, but by no means all. "Suffice to say they're quite impressive".


Milan were slightly better after the break but never truly threatened to reduce the deficit.

Goals from Saul Niguez, Diego Costa and Koke in the 22nd, 47th and 90th minutes gave Atletico a comfortable first-leg win.

All the return legs come up on Thursday, March 15.

Spanish worldwide Costa has now scored six goals for Atletico since returning to the club from Chelsea in January.

Whilst that is only one of two European Trophies that Arsenal have won, the Gunners also played in the Champions League for 19 consecutive seasons (including reaching one final), with only Real Madrid bettering that.
