Wenger: 'Lacazette out for Milan'

14 March 2018

Though Arsenal reported that 59,131 tickets were sold for the Watford game, there were several thousand seats left empty as supporters stayed away in protest at Wenger's struggles.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is anxious by an apparent dip in attendance at the Emirates stadium in recent weeks but said he is confident the team will do "absolutely everything" to win back their fans.

Now, it's claimed that Arsenal have settled on Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri as their top choice to replace Wenger, having seen him mastermind a Champions League win over Tottenham Hotspur last week.

Victory in the Europa League is his only chance of silverware this season and failure will also certainly condemn Arsenal to a second successive season without Champions League football.

"It's important we treat it as 0-0 and go out there for the win".

The Gunners have lost four of their last six games, but they seemed to claw some form back on Sunday when they beat Watford 3-0 at the Emirates.

Manager Arsene Wenger said he had a full squad of players to choose from with the exception of Alexandre Lacazette, who is out with a knee problem. They still, however, remain a long way from the dominant team they were over a decade ago.

Alexandre Lacazette will miss the match following knee surgery, but is expected return to action following the global break.

Arsenal beat AC Milan 2-0 in the first leg of their last 16 clash and take on the Italians at home on Thursday.

"Then we can discuss how the team plays or something else, but I find that the criticisms that fall on Arsene on a personal level are hard to accept".

"If you lose the first one then it's a massive game, like we faced in the [Carabao] Cup, you have more chances to lose the next one".

When asked about the latest reports during his pre-match press conference, Wenger told reporters: "On my side nothing has changed".
