Europa League: Arsenal stun AC Milan to ease pressure on Wenger

Europa League: Arsenal stun AC Milan to ease pressure on Wenger

Not surprisingly, Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso was far from happy after seeing his team's 13-match unbeaten run end. The Italians had gone 10 games without losing between these defeats.

Ramsey struck for the round 16 first-leg win. This is the first time Arsenal have lost four games consecutively since 2002.

Low isn't the only candidate in Arsenal's sights, however, and Sami Mokbel of the Daily Mail recently reported AS Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim and ex-midfielder Mikel Arteta-now a coach at Manchester City-are in the running. Arsenal are without Alexandre Lacazette and Nacho Monreal, and also the cup-tied Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. While Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is eligible due to him appearing for Dortmund earlier in the competition.

The trend continued following a weird UEFA ruling which meant Arsene Wenger's side were forced to wear their away kit at the Emirates for the Europa League round of 32 second leg against Swedish minnows Ostersunds.

Therefore, there was optimism among the 70,000 Rossoneri fans inside the atmospheric San Siro that Gattuso's side could make a huge statement in front of a bigger European audience.

Gattuso introduced Nikola Kalinic and Andre Silva to bolster Milan's limp attack, but speculative efforts from Bonaventura and Kessie were about the best the home side could muster, allowing Arsenal to head back to London with a solid lead and a major boost in confidence.

The Gunners, though, almost overturned the massive deficit in the return leg with a 3-0 victory at the Emirates, which went down as one of the classic fixtures of the modern Champions League era. "I hope he takes Milan to the Champions League next season, even if a derby between Dynamo Kiev and Milan wouldn't be easy for me".

This looks the tie of the round as both sides look to get one step closer to Europa League glory.
