Arsenal utilized a 4-3-3 formation for the game with Robin van Persie supported by Theo Walcott on the right flank and Yao Gervinho on the right flank.
Both Walcott and Gervinho had a decent game, but it is simply not enough. Had one of them displayed some brilliance, the outcome would have been in Arsenal's favor.
Robin van Persie looked threatening all game long and did have a superb game. It's a pity that he missed that vital chance. Yet, his penalty showed the poise of a confident, world-class player.
He also had a great shot blocked by Abbiati in the first half.
Theo Walcott: 5/10
Robin van Persie: 8/10
AC Milan also utilized a 4-3-3 formation with Robinho, Ibrahimovich and El Shaarawy.
Robinho had a decent game but couldn't contribute much. Stephan El Shaarawy on the other hand had a great opportunity to knock the game out of Arsenal's grasp but failed to do so.
Ibrahimovich was somewhat a disgrace: despite putting in an effort, he went down too easily and failed to convert any chances. He missed a glaring opportunity when he was presented with the ball by Arsenal's keeper.
El Shaarawy: 2/10
