By on February 15, 2012


Arsenal take on the mighty AC Milan at the San Siro tonight in the first leg of the Champions League encounter.

Manager Arsene Wenger has made the decision to leave exciting youngster Alex oxlade-Chamberlain on the bench, preferring to go with the more experienced Thomas Rosicky on the left side of midfield.

AC  Milan Team:

Abbiati, Mexes, Abate, Thiago Silva, Antonini, Van Bommel, Seedorf, Nocerino, Boateng, Zlatan, Robinho

SUBS:  Amelia, Pato, Nesta, Ambrosini, Bonera, Emanuelson, El Shaarawy.

SUBS: Fabianski, Djourou, Coquelin, Arshavin, Benayoun, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henry.
