Arsenal dispatch Milan

According to former Milan coach Arrigo Sacchi Arsenal wouldn't win the second leg because 'they were scared and narcissistic'. Spot on Arrigo, they looked terrified.
Any neutral would be delighted by Arsenal's win as their football was a delight. Admittedly Milan were poor, but Arsenal made them look poor. More impressive was the fact Arsenal had players missing. Hleb and Fabregas were again outstanding, but Flamini seems to improve in every game he plays. Not only did he outfight Gattuso, which is no mean feat, but his forward play was also excellent, especially his passing. In general Arsenal's passing was much sharper than in the first leg, where they opted for the long punt to Adebayor too often.
