Arsenal are currently flying high in all competitions while Middlesbrough only have six points in the Premier League but can the Smoggies use their decent form on the road to topple the Gunners?
Middlesbrough only have six points this season and five of these have been won on the road. They’ve only earned one at home against Stoke on the opening day of the season.
Their last five fixtures have been four losses and one draw so you can understand if they’re slightly daunted traveling to north London on Saturday.
Boro and Arsenal have played 130 matches head-to-head over the years. The Gunners have won 64, Boro 34.
At Arsenal, the odds are stacked dramatically in Arsenal’s favour. They’ve won 36 to Boro’s six.
Saying all this, the Gunners still don’t look as if they’re out of second gear yet. Could Middlesbrough be to first team since Liverpool to really expose their weak points?
