Arsenal see off AC Milan to reach the Europa League quarterfinals

Danny Wellback heads home Arsenal's third goal

"If we get Atletico Madrid, we get Atletico Madrid".

The England worldwide got the wrong side of Ricardo Rodriguez and went to ground, with referee Jonas Eriksson pointing to the spot despite minimal, if any, contact.

"Ricardo Rodriguez didn't touch him, but for the referee it was a penalty anyway".

Welbeck's theatrics were condemned by pundits, while Swedish referee Jonas Eriksson was slammed for being tricked by the play-acting. "You want to accuse English players to be divers?"

"Honestly I don't know".

"After that, Danny took the penalty in a convincing way, and I will watch it again and give my honest feeling about it. I don't want any alibi", Gattuso said.

Xhaka's long-range effort bobbled into the net for Arsenal's second after poor goalkeeping by Milan's highly rated Gianluigi Donnarumma, before Welbeck headed in a third. It was a moment that should embarrass English football and maybe even shame a few others to stop diving once they see the reaction as even Arsenal fans were left appalled.

Speaking at a news conference before Arsenal's clash with AC Milan on Thursday night, Wenger said: "Lacazette is coming back into training".

Chelsea set to sign another Arsenal star with sensational summer deal

Andre Silva, who scored a last-minute victor for Milan in their Serie A victory at Genoa on Sunday, had a great chance to reduce the arrears inside the opening minute - but the Portugal worldwide could only hit the side-netting when played in.

On the day he received an England recall, Welbeck made no mistake from the spot to score his first European goal since a hat-trick against Galatasaray in October 2014.

Arsenal aren't in action on the weekend due to the FA Cup quarter-finals having postponed most of the Premier League ties and they next face Stoke City at the Emirates Stadium on April 1, which would mean Koscielny will have a fighting chance to be fit in time for the visit of the Potters.

The North Londoners join the likes of CSKA Moscow, Red Bull Salzburg, Atletico Madrid, Lazio, Marseille, Sporting Lisbon and Red Bull Leipzig in the quarters.

"Apart from that, we have targets as well now to finish as close as possible to the top four, and why not benefit from a miracle. If we get Atletico Madrid, we get Atletico Madrid".

"We played well and it's not easy to do that here".

But it would be Milan who got themselves back in the tie as Calhanoglu fired home from distance.
