Gunners mauled in Milan

Published Add your comment

Arsenal's Champions League dreams were shattered by a humiliating 4-0 defeat to AC Milan in the first leg of their last 16 clash at the San Siro.

Former Tottenham midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng fired the Italians ahead on 15 minutes with a sublime strike, before two goals from ex-Manchester City frontman Robinho and a penalty from Zlatan Ibrahimovic put the tie beyond the Gunners.

Arsenal never really settled and were punished for some careless possession, and not even the introduction of former captain Thierry Henry in the final game of his loan spell from New York Red Bulls could spark a fairytale comeback.
