Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was pleased with their Europa League win against AC Milan.
Victory meant Arsenal reached a European quarter-final for the first time since 2010.
Wenger said: “It’s much better, we needed that to recover from our results.
“It shows how the team has responded. We had a difficult game but in the end we won it.
“It was an open game. We played backwards a bit too much in the first half to protect the result. We played a very good side.
“We have to improve defensively, but overall we are team with technical quality which is more offense-minded.
“We struggle a bit more when we have to defend. We finished the game more compact and more solid.
“We would certainly want to avoid Atletico Madrid, but we will see, we have no influence over that.”
On Danny Welbeck’s penalty, he added: “When I watch the penalty, I will give you an honest answer.
“It was good to see a response from the team at 1-0 down.
“I don’t want to accuse Danny Welbeck of diving before I see it again.”
