Arteta looking forward to Milan clash

Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has insisted that he cannot wait to face Italian champions AC Milan, arsenal.com reports.

The Gunners were drawn against the seven time winners in the second round of the Champions League. Milan are a formidable opponent and one of the best sides in the competition, despite finishing second in their group to Barcelona. Arsenal have played Milan over two legs before and a 2-0 win in the San Siro helped to seal victory.

Arteta signed for Arsenal in the summer from Everton and stated that the reason he moved was to play in big games like these. The Spaniard has settled nicely at the Emirates Stadium and has become one of the key names on Arsene Wenger’s teamsheet.

‘I smiled when the draw was made, because I think it’s a really good game to play. It makes it more exciting to play a team like Milan. Any team at this stage of the Champions League is going to be tough, even if people think you are favourites. I like playing against teams like this and we’ve got a good chance, so let’s play’, Arteta said.
