Taye Taiwo believes the Gunners can exploit the weaknesses the Italian giants have

QPR’s loan signing from AC Milan, Taye Taiwo, has told Arsenal what is required to beat his parent club.

The Nigeria international only made four Serie A appearances for the Italian giants although did feature in four Champions League games.

The 26-year-old believes that the Gunners are able to beat AC Milan and outlined points of weaknesses the Rossoneri have.

“Don’t sit back! Attack Milan in the San Siro. They aren’t used to teams doing it and won’t know how to deal with it,” Taiwo told the Daily Mail

“Theo Walcott should target Gianluca Zambrotta, he won’t be able to

deal with his pace.

“Arsenal’s front three should target Alessandro Nesta with their pace. He does not like tracking runners and is short of pace.

“If Alberto Aquilani plays, Alex Song should get in his face. He needs time to pick out his potentially deadly passes.

“Laurent Koscielny can’t let Zlatan Ibrahimovic bully him. If he imposes himself, then Arsenal could be in for a long night.”

Taiwo is yet to be on the winning side at QPR since joining in January with a draw at Aston Villa being the best result so far.
