AC Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso has warned Arsenal ahead of their second leg in the Europa Cup clash despite his side’s first leg defeat.

AC Milan suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to the Gunners in the first leg but Gatusso insists he side can still make it the next round of the competition.

The defeat was Milan first loss of the year, but they were able to put the defeat behind as they defeated Genoa in the Serie A on Sunday with a late goal from Andre Silva.

Gattuso was happy with his team’s performance after the game and insists they are not heading to London for holiday.

Gattuso hopes to remain AC Milan boss 

"After Thursday, I heard a lot of nattering that you hear in the pub, about how we were lacking something physically, yet here we are coping right through to the 95th minute," 

"We just got that game wrong against a strong Arsenal side. We realised that and today we responded.

"We've still got a 30 percent chance of going through and we're not going to London for a holiday. We need to respect our glorious shirts.

"The league table is finally looking pretty for us. Our objective is there in front of us, but we've got to take things game by game.

"I was a bit worried because we'd not lost in two-and-a-half months until Arsenal so we were afraid we might struggle after going so long without losing, but the team responded well."

Arsenal beat Watford 3-0 in the Premier League on Sunday, ending a run of three consecutive Premier League defeats, Gattuso told Mediaset.
