'Bye bye Europa League', 'Finished', 'It's over' - Arsenal fans react to latest club news
Arsenal have been drawn against Italian giants AC Milan in the last 16 of the Europa League, and supporters of the club don’t have much hope of making it to the quarter-finals.
The Gunners were handed the battle against the Serie A side following a 4-2 aggregate win against Swedish minnows Ostersunds on Thursday night.
Arsene Wenger’s side had gone into the second leg with a 3-0 advantage after having beaten Graham Potter’s side comprehensively in Sweden and it looked as though it would be a stroll into the next round of the competition.
However, an own goal from Callum Chambers from a Hosam Aiesh deflected shot and a Ken Sema strike inside the first 25 minutes at the Emirates meant it was not going to plain sailing for the Gunners.
And now, having held on, the Gunners face a battle against Milan at the San Siro in the first leg to face a Gennaro Gattuso side that are much-improved of late.
The Rossoneri had a difficult start to the season when Vincenzo Montella was at the helm and in November after clocking up just 20 points from 14 games played, he was sacked.
Milan are now up to seventh in Serie A now and having won four of their last outings in the league, they are chasing down the Champions League places.
Here is the reaction from Arsenal supporters on Twitter after news of the draw broke who give their side no hope of emerging victorious:
Bye bye Europa league !

Yes let's hope we crush out early the better so that dictator Wenger can be sacked early rather than to be given false hope.
