Arsene Wenger in focus

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger likened his team to a boxer struggling to get up after a knockdown as they overcame their recent poor form with a 2-0 Europa League win at AC Milan. Today's game is a huge test for them, and I hope they take tests better than I did when I was in school.

However, that was with a large number of Arsenal fans hugely disappointed at underachieving during this era in the life of their Club. "We have won a game, we are not qualified". Gennaro Gattuso's seven-time European champions now have it all to do ahead of the second leg at the Emirates in seven days' time.

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

With may of them wanting to see the back of their Manager.

And he made Milan pay with just 15 minutes on the clock, as he found Henrikh Mkhitaryan for the Armenian international's first ever goal in Arsenal colours.

He should have scored a second, clipping the crossbar shortly before Ramsey doubled the lead. He wants his players to be competitive and aggressive: he was like that as a player, so I'm not surprised.

The last time the two side's met in the 2011/12 season, Milan thrashed the Premier League side 4-0 in the first leg of the Champions League last-16.

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

For four games straight, the Gunners have been losing.

Arsenal's victory ended a run of 13 games without defeat for AC Milan, with their previous loss before this coming back in December against Atalanta in Serie A.
