Arsenal draw AC Milan in Europa League last 16, fans react

Arsenal were roundly mocked by rival fans on Thursday night when the team suffered a surprise 2-1 defeat to Swedish minnows Ostersunds.

The North London outfit went two goals down inside the first 23 minutes, and even though Sead Kolasinac managed to pull a goal back for Arsene Wenger’s side, it was not enough to inspire a comeback.

Despite losing on the night, the Premier League club still progressed into the last 16 thanks to their 3-0 win in the first leg.

On Friday, UEFA completed the draw for the next round of knockout matches and Arsenal were matched with AC Milan.
