Magnificen Mesut steps up to keep Wenger and Arsenal's season alive

The German global has been at the top of his game for the first 45 minutes at the San Siro, with Gennaro Gattuso's men struggling to contain him.

Arsene Wenger hopes Arsenal's win at AC Milan will "lift the belief" of the team after going through one of the roughest patches of his tenure, but also warned they must "finish the job" against the Italians next week.

His Milan team now sit in seventh place of Serie A. They are flying at the moment and in their last game they won a penalty shootout against Lazio to reach the Coppa Italia final.

Under the guidance of former midfield stalwart Gennaro Gattuso, Milan have expereicened an upturn in form which has seen them go 12 games unbeaten.

However, it appears Ozil has more than shown up this evening... and he could be about to do more damage with the second-half about to get underway.

In the fourth minute of first half added time, Aaron Ramsey made it 2-0 off a brilliant through pass from Mesut Ozil as he rounded Gianluigi Donnarumma before slotting into an empty net.

Ozil's exuberance on the pitch is always better placed when the players around him fulfil their tactical duties. "We have won a game, we are not qualified".

Gattuso introduced Nikola Kalinic and Andre Silva to bolster Milan's limp attack, but speculative efforts from Bonaventura and Kessie were about the best the home side could muster, allowing Arsenal to head back to London with a solid lead and a major boost in confidence.
