Ozil reaches Arsenal century as he delivers for Wenger against AC Milan

Brazilian defender Marcelo scored the only goal as last season's semi-finalists Lyon grabbed a 1-0 win at CSKA Moscow, as they look to go one better this term with the final at their Groupama Stadium.

The Gunners have lost four straight games in a row as the pressure continues to mount on Arsene Wenger.

Ozil stepped up to that plate in a crunch Europa League last-16 encounter with AC Milan which had been billed as a make-or-break fixture for under-fire boss Wenger .

Seven-time European champions Milan are a shadow of the force they once were, languishing in seventh place in Serie A despite spending more than £200m last summer in a bid to change their fortunes.

Andriy Shevchenko has praised former AC Milan team-mate Gennaro Gattuso for turning around the Rossoneri's fortunes since replacing Vincenzo Montella.

Gattuso introduced Nikola Kalinic and Andre Silva to bolster Milan's limp attack, but speculative efforts from Bonaventura and Kessie were about the best the home side could muster, allowing Arsenal to head back to London with a solid lead and a major boost in confidence.

In the San Siro, he had already been giving young Milan right-back Davide Calabria a torrid time before putting Arsenal on the path to victory with his first goal for the Gunners.

Arsenal fans aren't going into their Europa League clash with AC Milan tonight with any optimism, it seems. The supporters will rightly ask where this performance has come from, why it has not been seen previously and how is it possible for a team to lose against relegation-threatened Brighton and win at San Siro four days later.

Ozil has been directly involved in 100 goals in 189 appearances for Arsenal - 37 goals and 63 assists. "We conceded two entirely avoidable goals".
