AC Milan are certain to go all-out in their attempts to turn the tie around, as they aim to secure a spot in the quarter-finals of the continental competition, and Arsenal will need to be on top of their game despite holding an advantage.
Arsenal will hope that their heavy-hitters are ready for the clash and Arsene Wenger has issued an update on two players ahead of the game, stating that Mesut Ozil will be available but that Shkodran Mustafi is a concern after he picked up injury in the victory over Watford.
Speaking ahead of the game, the Frenchman said:
“It looks alright. We have one problem and that’s Mustafi, who had to come off.”
Arsenal will hope that Mustafi, who opened the scoring for the Gunners in the victory over the Hornets, is available to sit in the heart of defence.
