Another savvy performance from our team saw the Gunners through to the Quarter-Finals at the expense of AC Milan.

Arsenal, with only one hope of a trophy, unsurprisingly went with their strongest possible lineup.

Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were joined just behind sole striker Danny Welbeck by Jack Wilshere, and our central midfield was made up of Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey, and our defence was the strongest possible, with Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny joined by the returning Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal.

Again, just like the first leg, Milan had the first chance of the game, and it was a good one. Fabio Borini, yep the same one, was playing at right-back, and his cut back found Andre Silva, but silva could only find the side netting when well placed. It was a nudge to remind us that this was far from over.

We recovered and we were holding Milan at arms length, but after ten minutes, our defensive stability took a hit as Laurent Koscielny was forced off with a back injury, meaning Calum Chambers came on in his stead. It didn’t seem to affect us though.

We were knocking the ball around well, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan was giving makeshift fullback Borini a real lesson in positioning, as time and again the Armenian was causing him problems. On 25 minutes, Welbeck did well to sneak into the area and his effort was beaten away by Donnarumma at the near post.

We were bossing it, but at times Milan escaped their shackles, and we had to remain wary. Around the half-hour mark, Milan began a spell where a false offside and a missed chance represented their best spell, and on the 35th minute, they had their lifeline.

Hakhan Calhanoglu received the ball and there was no one closing him down. So, the Turkish attacker took a shot, and his effort was fierce, and sailed into the far corner, with Ospina well beaten.

The aggregate was 2-1 - one more goal and this tie was all square again.

Mere minutes later, we had the two goal advantage again - thanks to Danny Welbeck. The striker is often derided for his lack of a killer instinct in front of goal, but he earned the penalty, and he then sent Donnarumma the wrong way from the spot. Top man Dan!

The minutes before half time were pretty much AC Milan trying to get back another goal and they very nearly did, but David Ospina came to the rescue with a point blank save to deny Silva again. Then Welbeck crossed for Mkhitaryan to send a header just wide, before the last action of the half saw Wilshere send a piledriver toward goal that Donnarumma did well to parry.

Half time, and it was all square, but crucially, thanks to the contentious decision that was the Welbeck penalty - watch it again and it looks quite bad - we had our advantage again.

The second half was just as open as the end of the first, and both sides had opportunities, but we were being given acres of space. We could kill this game off, if we could’ve found our shooting boots.

Patrick Cutrone was also guilty of missing a gilt-edge chance, and he shinned a great chance wide. This match wasn’t over, but each minute that passed meant we were inching closer.

Milan, as the time went by, were starting to gain the ascendancy, but no goals were coming. Wenger took the precaution to get an extra man in the final third, by taking off Mkhitaryan and replacing him with Mohamed Elneny - it looked like we were going to sit on the lead and hit on the break.

With just less than 20 minutes to go - we put this game to bed. Granit Xhaka took a potshot and Donnarumma - rumoured to be interesting PSG with a price tag of over £50m - let it squirm from his grasp and into the net - effectively killing his side’s chances.

Predictably, Milan threw caution to the wind and tested Ospina again, but we were holding firm, and Milan were getting desperate. Sead Kolasinac was summoned from the bench to replace Mesut Ozil, and we were clearly going to sit this one out.

Or so we thought.

Arsenal always have the capacity to surprise, and Jack Wilshere’s superb cross found aaron Ramsey. The Welshman’s header was well kept out by Donnarumma, but Welbeck was well placed and on hand to slam home the rebound.

Well and truly game over - and the match was won deservedly by us. We kept cool heads, we played when we needed and we got the goals.

The final whistle was the end for Milan’s torture, and we looked the real deal. Of course, Atletico Madrid are the favourites and we could still flop at any moment, but our players look pumped for this tournament, and we’re finding form.

Well played boys. #UTA
