Arsenal vs Middlesbrough by Rahul

Arsenal take on Middlesbrough in the FA Cup 5th round, and will be looking to win this with the thought in their mind that they are taking on a Championship outfit tonight. However, they take on a Middlesbrough side who are joint top of the Championship with a game in hand and will probably be a Premier League side next week.


Arsenal have been in good form coming into this game losing just 3 out of their last 15 games, and will feel reasonably confident coming into this big encounter. With some of their big guns gaining form like Ozil, Giroud, Cazorla, Sanchez, Walcott and Ramsey coming into this game, Arsenal will feel confident of securing this result at home and scoring goals. The problem for Arsenal comes from their defensive efforts where they have conceded in 3 of their last 4 games, including against Tottenham, Leicester and Brighton. They only managed a clean sheet against a poor Aston Villa side.


Boro will be extremely confident after beating Premier League defending champions in Manchester City by a score of 2-0 away from home. Middlesbrough themselves are also in great form, losing just 1 game in their last 15 and scored in all but 3 games during that spell. Boro are led by former Real Madrid manage Karanka, who will have surely called up Jose Mourinho for a bit of advise on how to beat Arsenal. Boro have a talented group of players like Kike, Bamford, Tomlin, Vossen and Leadbitter, who have been the key factor in the goal scoring department.


This game will be an exciting encounter with both teams looking to go hard at each other. Boro will look to take first blood to put Arsenal under pressure, and I think this should land up in both teams scoring in this encounter.
