Arsenal stun AC Milan in Europa League quarter final first leg

An inspired Arsenal cruised to a comfortable 2-0 victory over AC Milan in their Europa League round-of-16 first-leg tie at the San Siro on Thursday night.

Milan entered the match having gone 13 consecutive matches unbeaten, while the Gunners, on the other hand, had won just once in their last five in all competitions.

However, it was Arsene Wenger's side who looked the in-form team and used first-half goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey to blunt Gennaro Gattuso's men in front of an expectant home crowd.

And it was the Armenia international who opened the scoring after just 15 minutes when he settled a Mesut Ozil pass, cut inside and beat Gianluigi Donnarumma after his right-footed shot deflected off a defender inside the box.

The goal marked Mkhitaryan's first since joining the Emirates side from Manchester United during the January transfer window.

Arsenal looked dangerous going forward throughout the remainder of first half and they deservedly added their second with the last action before the break through Ramsey, who received a through ball from Ozil down the right channel, calmly rounded Donnarumma and slotted into the empty net.

The two teams will meet again next Thursday at the Emirates as the Premier League side look to protect their first-leg advantage.
