Milan came away with a well-deserved 1-1 with Arsenal in their first game of the Emirates Cup in London. Coach Massimiliano Allegri saw plenty of positive performances throughout the team but particular from Abbiati and Flamini while Pato confirmed what a dangerous striker he is.

The Rossoneri were under pressure early on but Pato sprinted into the area but closed down as the Brazilian tried to square the ball back along the six-yard area. The same player then dipped a header wide from a Seedorf corner.

Flamini had an effort deflected off Koscielny and onto the woodwork after a long ball from Yepes was knocked down into his path on 21 minutes.

Arsenal opened the scoring on 36 minutes when Marouane Chamakh slotted home from inside the area after collecting a through ball from Arshavin.

Rodisky then shot straight at Abbiati but it was Milan who looked lively going forward in the closing stages of the first-half as Borriello almost raced on to a long ball after Pato had cut inside to go close with a shot which just went over the bar.

On 51 minutes, Flamini forced Fabianski into a smart save at his near post. At the other end, there was good Rossoneri defending to keep Wiltshire out as the game opened up.

Just after the hour-mark Rino Gattuso made way for Under-19 German international Alexander Merkel and soon after Papastathopoulos made way for Zambrotta. Berretta came on for Borriello on 69 minutes as Allegri continued to ring the changes.

Milan found the equaliser on 77 minutes when Pato glanced a downward header home from close range following a curling free-kick from Seedorf from the left.

Abbiati then made a double save from Randall as Allegri rang more chances, with Strasser on for Flamini, Verdi for Abate and Oddo replacing Pato.

Four minutes from full-time Zambrotta hit the bar with a stunning effort in what was certainly positive afternoon for Allegri's men.
