Arsenal’s record at the Riverside Stadium doesn’t make for good reading

Posted on April 16, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal travel to the Riverside Stadium to face Middlesbrough in the Premier League on Monday evening, desperate for a win to boost their fledgling hopes of a top-four finish. With four consecutive defeats on the road, Arsenal come into their clash with Boro in poor form and don’t have the best record against the North-East outfit in recent head-to-heads.

Arsenal’s last nine Premier League meetings with Middlesbrough
(10/9/05) Middlesbrough 2-1 Arsenal
(14/1/06) Arsenal 7-0 Middlesbrough
(9/9/06) Arsenal 1-1 Middlesbrough
(3/2/07) Middlesbrough 1-1 Arsenal
(9/12/07) Middlesbrough 2-1 Arsenal
(15/3/08) Arsenal 1-1 Middlesbrough
(13/12/08) Middlesbrough 1-1 Arsenal
(26/4/09) Arsenal 2-0 Middlesbrough
(22/10/16) Arsenal 0-0 Middlesbrough

Arsenal have picked up just one Premier League win against Middlesbrough in the last 11 years, having been held at home to the newly-promoted outfit earlier this season. Boro have long been a bogey side for the Gunners, particularly at the Riverside Stadium, winning or drawing in their last four head-to-heads in their own backyard.

But Monday might see the favourites come out on top as Middlesbrough are suffering from a goal drought as well as poor form. They held Arsenal in the reverse fixture but have gone 14 games without a win ahead of their latest meeting. Arsenal are 4/7 to win against Middlesbrough on Monday night, and would overcome a long-standing winless run at the Riverside Stadium in the process.
