Updates, team news and highlights from Europa League clash

A ticket to watch Wenger's team in action was once the hottest in town, especially for this type of fixture against aristocratic opponents such as AC Milan.

Arsene Wenger has said that Arsenal are faced with a "psychological problem" ahead of their Europa League last-16 second-leg clash with AC Milan on Thursday. "He can still express a lot and give a lot".

Arsenal beat Watford at home last weekend but have lost the last three games they played at home before that game, in three different competitions.

"I definitely want to be here", he said. Sometimes these things just happen.

"We know that we have to do much better than the first leg, but we are proud to play in a lovely stadium against a great team".

Wenger has a contract until the end of next season and the Frenchman has made it clear that he won't be leaving on his accord despite the clamour for change amongst the Arsenal fans.

"We've still got a 30 percent chance of going through and we're not going to London for a holiday", Gattuso insists.

Goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey saw Arsenal to a comfortable victory in Milan but while acknowledging the task at hand, Gattuso insisted his team have nothing to lose.

"They are technical players, who can play in all positions".

ARSENE WENGER has called on his Arsenal side to put on the sort of displays that will have stay-away fans returning to the Emirates Stadium.

Gattuso mentioned that a few of his players will sit out the game as they are suffering from injuries. We've got to play with the same mentality tomorrow. "The boys are suffering from a bit of fatigue but that is not an excuse as I have strong players who can play at any time". Obviously it has been a tough run of games for us. He must begin to understand what his strength is, the culture of work.

"It's a massive opportunity for us".

Substitute Nikola Kalinic should have added some intrigue to the final stages of the game, only to send his header straight into the palms of a grateful Ospina following a teasing cross from centre-back Bonucci.

The decision was so soft, nearly three-quarters of respondents to a tweet from the official Arsenal Twitter account said they would not have awarded the penalty.
