Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has challenged his side to maintain their momentum to give themselves every chance of knocking AC Milan out of the Champions League.

The Gunners were paired with the Italians, who were runners-up to Barcelona in their group. Arsenal beat AC Milan 2-0 away at the same stage of the competition in 2008 as they progressed to the quarter-finals and Wenger wants to make sure his team will arrive for the first leg at the San Siro on February 15 at the top of their game.

"It is a difficult draw, but an exciting one, and they could say exactly the same thing I suppose. It is a 50-50," Wenger told the club's official website, "Everybody knows Milan, everybody knows Arsenal. We have been in the Champions League for many years and both sides play positive football."
