  • Arsene Wenger uses boxer analogy to describe Arsenal's nightmare run of form

Arsenal put their recent woes behind them with a fine 2-0 victory over AC Milan at the San Siro on Thursday night.

Having already teed up Henrikh Mkhitaryan to open the scoring against Milan, Ozil then repeated the trick in first-half stoppage-time as Aaron Ramsey doubled the away side's advantage.

They also lost 2-1 at home to Swedish minnows Ostersunds FK, surviving a huge second-leg scare to set up this tie against Milan. "That's what we did tonight", Wenger told a news conference. "And that's what we have shown, we needed to find mental resources".

"Like a boxing match, when you are half knocked-down and another (punch) comes again, and that's what happened to us".

It goes without saying that Arsenal need to take this seriously if they want to return to the Champions League next year.

"It is an important win because we had a nightmare week", said Wenger.

Oculus Rifts Have Stopped Working Across The Globe
According to multiple reports on the Oculus forums , trying to launch the Oculus software generates a runtime service error. Certain people and companies won't be able to give demos of their VR game or VR experience until this is addressed.

Arsenal started brightly at the San Siro but were lucky not to concede a penalty when Hakan Calhanoglou stayed on his feet despite appearing to have been fouled by onrushing Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina.

The Gunners grew in confidence after that strike, with Donnarumma making two good saves late in the opening period to deny Calum Chambers and Danny Welbeck, before Mkhitaryan hit the crossbar.

"The second leg will be hard to turn this around, but anything can happen in football".

Things We Learned From Manchester City's Dominant 1-0 Win Over Chelsea
Rewind to December 2016, Chelsea was also down 1-0 at Etihad Stadium after an hour and being overrun by City. Obviously we could have done better but these are not small games.

Spanish global Costa has now scored six goals for Atletico since returning to the club from Chelsea in January.

However, their display could not help but give the impression that, even in their lowest moments, it would be foolish to write off their chances of somehow going on to win the Europa League and secure a route back into the Champions League.

Trump Hotels brand ousted from Panama property
