Arsenal vs. AC Milan match thread

let's have some of this, eh?
Arsenal vs. AC Milan
Tuesday March 6th, 2:45 ET
The Emirates, London
Form: ARS WLLWW | ACM WWWDW
TV: Fox Soccer

And so it's come to this. We play for our European lives (for this year), and take a stab at history with a 4-2-4 formation (at least that's what I'm calling it). Comment below, if you are so inclined. Remember to refrain from any of the bad -isms, don't post links to streams, and be good to each other. And don't feed any trolls too much, should any show up, though I know it's tough to resist.

Aidan's match preview from yesterday can be found here. Lineups can be found after the jump. Let's dust these bastards. UP THE ARSENAL.

Arsenal: Szczesny; Gibbs, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Sagna; Song, Rosicky, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Gervinho, van Persie, Walcott

ARS subs: Fabianski, Djourou, Miquel, Jankinson, Ozyakup, Chamakh, Park

AC Milan: Abbiati; Abate, Mexes, Thiago Silva, Mesbah; Emanuelson, van Bommel, Noverino; El Shaarawy; Robinho, Ibrahimovic

ACM subs: Amelia, Roma, Zambrotta, Bonera, Yepes, Aquilani, Ganz

Interesting note: AC Milan have named two goalkeepers to their bench, according to Arseblog on the tweets. So evidently either they're really concerned about goalkeeper injuries, or someone will need to make them aware that they can't play two at one time.
