Wenger hails Arsenal win after 'nightmare' week

  • Wenger pleased with response after ‘nightmare’ week

They head into the San Siro having lost their last four games in all competitions, including their Carabao Cup final defeat against Manchester City.

The likes of Rodgers, Leonardo Jardim and Carlo Ancelotti have been touted to replace Wenger in London but as per ESPN, the Germany manager is Arsenal's top priority if they consider replacing Wenger.

The third wheel of that midfield was the key to this, one of Arsenal's best all-round performances of the season.

Wenger has admitted that winning this competition is Arsenal's only chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season and, as well picking the club off the canvas, this victory also sent a message to other teams in the competition.

Milan romped to a 4-0 victory when they hosted Arsenal back in 2012. Ozil needs to dig deep and if he is not going to, then he should not be playing. "It was he who picked me up in France and he who brought me back after my experience with Milan".

Arsenal, though, return home with two away goals, one foot in the last eight and their shattered confidence very much restored.

Former Arsenal defender Keown was full of praise for Ramsey after the Wales worldwide helped the Gunners keep their Europa League and Champions League aspirations alive.


It would've been a homecoming for ex-Milan youth team player Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but he is cup-tied following his January transfer from Borussia Dortmund.

If he was a new manager who had taken over the club at the start of the season, he would have been sacked.

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.

But the Arsenal administration unlike previous few instances doesn't seem to back the manager this time around and are keen on giving him a farewell before he buries the legacy he created for himself and the club during his illustrious stint with the Gunners.

Wenger has named a strong side for the match with Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Laurent Koscielny all starting, and David Ospina maintains his spot between the sticks in the Arsenal goal, as Petr Cech faces an evening on the substitutes bench.

The Armenia worldwide has showed few flashes of brilliance since arriving from Manchester United in January, but showed his quality in a competition where he has thrived since moving to England.

"Last year we won the FA Cup, we made 75 points and missed out of the Champions League by one point".
