Gennaro Gattuso cautious going into the match against Arsenal.

Gattuso previewed today’s match against Arsenal, saying:

We must give a top performance tomorrow. We can’t make mistakes and need to keep our composure. We must not be afraid of the 70,000 fans that will be at San Siro and show our qualities, both technical and physical. We must make it very difficult for them

Arsenal have a chance to rescue their season with a win against Milan, as the anger towards Wenger and the players have reached a boiling point. They desperately need a win to right the ship, and a match at the San Siro would be the perfect opportunity to win back the fans.

Gattuso hasn’t steered the club wrong yet, so Milan will be prepared, right?
