Arsenal have one foot in the Europa League quarter-finals after securing a shock 2-0 victory over AC Milan at the San Siro this evening.

Arsene Wenger’s side came into this last 16 first leg off the back off four straight defeats. Milan, on the other hand, were 13 matches unbeaten prior to this evening’s match.

Gennaro Gattuso’s side were subsequently favourites to win this fixture but they were made to look ordinary by the Gunners, who won thanks to first-half goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey.

This was one of Arsenal’s best performances of the season and alleviated the pressure on the club’s beleaguered manager.

Wenger got his tactics spot on this evening and Arsenal fans must be scratching their heads wondering why their team can’t play like this week-in, week-out.

Ramsey: We showed what we're capable of

“Tonight we showed what we’re capable of,” Ramsey told BT Sport after the match.

Gary Lineker posted cheeky tweet during the match

But while the result and performance was all well and good, Arsenal fans still needed to be furious about something - and Gary Lineker’s tongue-in-cheek tweet, posted during the match, has given them a reason to be angry.

“Arsenal are 2 up in Milan and are currently showing that the Premier League mid-table sides are stronger than the mid-table teams in Serie A. 😉“

Very cheeky, Gary.

Arsenal fans are reacting badly

Although clearly a joke, Arsenal fans have not reacted well to the former Tottenham striker’s tweet…

Lighten up guys, your team have just won 2-0 against a European giant! Why take the bait?

However, they’re currently 13 points off fourth-placed Spurs, so winning the Europa League is likely to be the club’s best chance of securing qualification for next season’s Champions League campaign.
