The Europa League win at the San Siro eased the pressure slightly on Wenger, who may need to win that competition in order to save his job this summer.

Winning that competition has now become a priority as there is virtually no chance we can finish in the top four with last weeks defeat at Brighton leaving us 13 points adrift of the top four.

"We have got to use this win as a target. We are aware of it", he said.

The 26-year-old England global has a little more than three months remaining on his current deal but negotiations over an extension remain at an impasse. As far as this game is concerned, it will not be easy playing away from home against Arsenal but I think that they are good enough to avoid losing. "We've just got to stick together". "We have to be ready".

His Arsenal career has been blighted by injuries, but this season the England worldwide has enjoyed his most successful spell in the famous red and white strip since the 2013/14 campaign, amassing 29 appearances in all competitions for the club.

Wilshere, 26, will see his contract expire at the end of the season, ending a 17-year association with the club unless he can agree to a new deal that keeps him in north London.

With Arsenal sixth in the Premier League and Milan seventh in Serie A, the match was played in very different circumstances to their last clash six years ago.

"Every manager will tell you when he doesn't get results that the first thing affected is the mood, the lack of sleep [because of] that desire to find solutions", he said.

The striker's future looked bleak under former boss Marco Silva, but three goals in four games have reiterated his importance. Arsene Wenger has hit back and it would be interesting to see if the obviously hostile reception that Deeney would get at the Emirates has an effect on the player as he is one of the key men in the side - who also scored their most recent victor against West Brom to claim all three points.

Earlier this season, Watford came out the victors in a 2-1 win at Vicarage Road, with goals from Tom Cleverley and a late Deeney winner.

Having refound their confidence, Arsenal played some flowing football as they repeatedly caught Milan on the break, leaving the Serie A side's coach Gennaro Gattuso red-faced with anger on the touchline.

"I think always is a good moment to play".

Gattuso's seven-time European champions now have it all to do ahead of the second leg.
