Wenger hails Arsenal win after 'nightmare' week

  • Arsenal must beat AC Milan over two legs in the last 16 of the Europa League if Arsene Wenger has any chance of saving his job

The Gunners fell to a limp Premier League defeat at Brighton on Sunday, following back-to-back 3-0 losses against Manchester City - the first of which came in the League Cup final at Wembley.

The Europa League represents Arsenal's last chance of silverware and securing a return to the Champions League next season, and they are on course for the quarter-finals after a 2-0 win in Italy.

However, they went into Arsenal's visit on a crest of a wave following the arrival of former midfielder Gattuso.

Milan are enjoying a rich vein of form and are unbeaten in 13.

But the pessimism from plenty of Arsenal supporters actually stems from the fact they are wearing their blue away kit at the San Siro tonight and they reckon it's cursed.

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.

Arsene Wenger hopes Arsenal's win at AC Milan will "lift the belief" of the team after going through one of the roughest patches of his tenure, but also warned they must "finish the job" against the Italians next week.


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

Here, Press Association Sport focuses on Wenger's impact on the last-16 first leg.

The Gunners are the first side to beat AC Milan at the San Siro in the Europa League/Uefa Cup since February 2002.

This season, the Gunners have won just a single game, against Belarusian side BATE Borisov, when wearing the strip.

For 13 games straight, AC Milan haven't known losing.

That assist saw him reach a notable landmark, with a hand having been played in 100 goals. "We conceded two entirely avoidable goals".
