Arsenal face a crucial few months remaining in the season, as they seek to secure improvements on what has been a largely disappointing campaign thus far.

The Gunners have fallen way behind in the chase for a top-four finish in the Premier League, endured defeat in the Carabao Cup final to Manchester City and experienced an early exit at the hands of Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup.

That has left the Europa League standing as Arsenal’s only chance of achieving success this season and tomorrow’s clash with AC Milan at the Emirates Stadium is set to be vastly significant to their campaign and the coming years in north London.

A stellar 2-0 victory at the San Siro last week gave Arsenal the advantage heading into the second-leg but Arsenal’s aspirations in the competition lie much deeper, as they’re intent on going all the way to Lyon and lifting the trophy.

It certainly won’t be easy but the Gunners should be confident, as we’ve identified three reasons why they will be victorious in Europe.
