Three facts about Middlesbrough:

  • Middlesbrough's only Premier League win this season has come against bottom club Sunderland (D3 L4).
  • Boro have kept just one clean sheet in their last 19 away Premier League fixtures, away at West Brom.
  • Five of Middlesbrough's seven Premier League goals have come in the first half this season (71%), a league-high proportion.

Star man: Alvaro Negredo

The former Manchester City man is currently on somewhat of a goal drought, but he arrived in the north-east as a big name addition to Aitor Karanka's squad. Often playing as the lone striker, his performance will be key to determining just how much of a threat Boro can be against the Arsenal back-line this weekend.
