Arsene Wenger outlines 'reachable targets' as Arsenal prepare to face AC Milan

Arsene Wenger outlines 'reachable targets' as Arsenal prepare to face AC Milan

Despite all the criticism, Arsenal still have silverware to play for and can secure Champions League football next season by winning this year's Europa League.

The highly-rated Suso of AC Milan during their friendly match at the Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth.

Goals from Saul Niguez, Diego Costa and Koke in the 22nd, 47th and 90th minutes gave Atletico a comfortable first-leg win. Before this match, Laurent Koscielny had warned that Arsenal were in danger of entering a "negative spiral" after four consecutive defeats but they emphatically ended that losing run with a comfortable victory in a hostile San Siro. The winger cut in from the left to fire in his first goal for the club with the aid of a deflection off Milan skipper Leonardo Bonucci.

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.

Arsenal will look to Özil to be their creative outlet in the centre of the park, as they look to control Milan's three-man midfield.

Arsene Wenger reverted to a 4-3-3 with Granit Xhaka, Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey all in midfield.

Biglia has cemented his place in Milan's midfield, and executes this role well.

The win at the San Siro followed four successive defeats for the Gunners, including a 3-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.

Zenit are down in 5th in the Russian Premier League, and they generally struggle on their travels as they've won just one of their last eight on the road in all competitions and were beaten at Celtic in the last round.

As per an ESPN report, Wenger who bolstered his squad by getting Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as replacements for departing forwards Alexis Sachez and Theo Walcott, Wenger has not managed to get his side clicking with the players getting largely unsettled with his tactics and training regimes.

Arsenal full back Hector Bellerin will miss Thursday's Europa League game against AC Milan after picking up a knee injury in training, manager Arsene Wenger said on Wednesday.

Such financial qualms are thankfully not something which Arsenal has to worry about, though they too have seen great sides retire and be replaced by players who - nearly to a man - are not fit to lace the boots of their predecessors.
