Arsenal player ratings: Gunners outstanding against AC Milan as star scores his first ever goal under Wenger

Arsenal beat AC Milan in the first tie of the Europa League clash thanks to goals from Aaron Ramsey and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Mkhitaryan gave Arsenal the lead on the 15th minute after latching onto a superb Mesut Ozil assist. The goal is the Armenian’s first in an Arsenal shirt since signing from Manchester United.

Aaron Ramsey doubled the lead for Wenger’s men just before half-time when the Welshman finished off a  superb team goal.

MAN OF THE MATCH

After a disappointing performance at the weekend against Brighton, Mesut Ozil starred in an outstanding individual performance. The German pulled all the strings in the centre of the park and created both Mkhitaryan and Ramsey’s goals. A superb nights work from Arsenal’s number eleven.
