Arsenal 3-1 AC Milan—Vote for Player Ratings & MOTM!

Arsenal domianted for long stretches, conceded a brilliant goal against the run of play, equalized through a divey Welbeck converting the pen, and killed off the tie when Donnarumma couldn't smother Xhaka's long-distance missile. Welbeck earned a more-honest goal in 87th minute when he nodded home a deflection from Ramsey's header. The result allowed us to advance to the quarterfinal on the strength of a 5-1 aggregate and does beg the question: why can't we play this well more consistently? Ahh, the mysteries of life, which one can ponder at another time. For now, savor this one, let it settle in your stomach like a nice bit of mac and cheese, and then go rate the lads!
