Flamini: No-one at Arsenal blaming Adebayor

Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini insists no-one is blaming Emmanuel Adebayor after his stunning miss against AC Milan on Wednesday night.

"Ade had the chance at the end, but that happens. He has scored so many goals for us," said the Frenchman.

"We have no choice now - we have to go over there and win the second leg.

"We have the quality to go over there and win the game to qualify.

"We have been playing together a few years now and already been to the final of the Champions League, so we cannot say we are inexperienced, too young, that is not a problem.

"We have beaten teams like Real Madrid and Juventus before so it's important to demonstrate that on the pitch again."

Flamini added: "We will have to deal with the midfield battle - after that we can play our game. It is important to be ready for the fight."
