Europa League: Arsenal To Play AC Milan In Last 16

LONDON ENGLAND- DECEMBER 19 Sead Kolasinac of Arsenal runs with the ball during the Carabao Cup quarter final match between Arsenal and West Ham Unitedat Emirates Stadium

Just hours after Arsenal scraped past Swedish minnows Östersunds FK on Thursday night, it was confirmed that Arsenal will travel to the San Siro for the first leg next month.

Ostersunds became just the second visiting team to win at the Emirates this season - joining Manchester United - and coach Graham Potter said he felt more pride than regrets over letting the first leg slip away.

Sead Kolasinac pulled one back for Arsenal shortly after the half time break as the north London outfit put in a much improved performance in the second half.

However, an own goal from Callum Chambers from a Hosam Aiesh deflected shot and a Ken Sema strike inside the first 25 minutes at the Emirates meant it was not going to plain sailing for the Gunners.

The visitors scored two quick goals in the first 70 seconds as the game kicked off to send a half-empty terraces into panic. We had no ideas with the ball and that's why we were in trouble.

"Ostersunds was a good test for him because you would think the player you don't want to pick on an artificial pitch would be him because of his history", he said. "We were not at the level that is demanded". "Wilshere's not injured. He was OK".

In fact, they are seven points off fifth-place Tottenham-a spot that would automatically grant them a place in next season's Europa League campaign. We are trying to win every game in every competition and, of course, we will be glad if we can win the Europa League as well, but if we can be in the top four, it will be even better.

Over the weekend he was training with the club, before getting sick early on this week.

The first leg will see Lyon, who were semi-finalists in the Europa League last season, travel to Russian Federation.

"For a club of our stature, to compete with this institution is a credit to the players and everyone connected with the club".

The Italian team, however, does not have a good record in England.

"We've got a Swedish Cup match on Monday, so it's back down to earth, back to reality".
