But a trip to the San Siro is never easy, and AC Milan are on a great run of form since Gennaro Gattuso took over – unbeaten in 13 matches.
Arsene Wenger has few injury issues ahead of the game – with Nacho Monreal (back) and Alexandre Lacazette (knee) his only major absentees.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is ineligible due to his former club Borussia Dortmund participating in the competition, while Santi Cazorla’s long-term achilles woes continue.
