Arsene Wenger: Win at AC Milan to 'lift the belief' at Arsenal

Arsene Wenger: Win at AC Milan to 'lift the belief' at Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has relayed what he feels are the key steps for the club turning around their current form, as they prepare to face AC Milan in the San Siro on Thursday.

The Frenchman has been under increasing pressure following a dismal start to 2018, with the club's supporters calling for his sacking during Sunday's 2-1 defeat at Brighton - a fourth consecutive loss.

The only remaining hope for silverware, and a return to the Champions League, is to win the Europa League, with Arsenal's first leg of their last 16 clash against Milan at the San Siro on Thursday. "I remember I was sat in the stands at the Amex and it was quite sad to hear the Arsenal fans and what they were singing out - maybe Wenger leaving the club", he said.

First legs like this always have the potential to be dour, defensive affairs - Milan hasn't lost since December and hasn't given up many goals in the process, and Arsenal struggle to score in the best of situations, so this game could easily end up 0-0.

"I think I still played with some fear, there's some movements when I still have some worries about getting injured again".

Arsenal have four players missing for tonight's game.

Nokia 9 is Expected to Release in August with Premium Specs
HMD Global is said to be gearing up to launch two new flagship Nokia phones in its 2018 line-up very soon. There are rumors about Nokia 9 that the fingerprint sensor will be given in the handset display itself.

But they watched a display containing commitment and organisation - two qualities sorely lacking in recent weeks - against a Milan side revitalised under Gennaro Gattuso. What I saw was a different side to Arsenal.

"The top four is out of the question now", Parlour said.

"It's a fascinating game and we really want to do well because we want to get through".

"That's what Arsenal will do now". They have reached the final of the Coppa Italia and outside of runaway duo Napoli and Juventus, are the form side in Italy. The Armenia worldwide ensured it did not go to waste, maintaining his fine Europa League goalscoring record with a little help from a Leonardo Bonucci deflection. We are in a negative spiral and it's hard to go out of this.

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.

Milan 1-1 Arsenal: Obviously we're in total disarray right now but hopefully a big game against a European heavy-weight is what the players need to get them back on track. Two away goals to the good after 45 minutes, this was the ideal European first-leg display: Defensively resolute when it mattered; blisteringly ruthless on the counter attack.
