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 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.
