Arsene Wenger says Arsenal responded 'like a boxer' in beating AC Milan 2-0
(EBC; March 9, 2018) - Bottom of Form Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger likened his team to a boxer struggling to get up after a knockdown as they overcame their recent poor form to win 2-0 at AC Milan in the Europa League.
The Gunners' last-16 first-leg victory in the San Siro meant they avoided a run of five straight defeats, which they last experienced in 1977.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey scored the goals.
"It is an important win because we had a nightmare week," said Wenger.
