Arsenal V Middlesbrough Match Preview.
Arsenal entertain Middlesbrough on saturday evening at the Emirates stadium in front of a sellout crowd per usuall. Both sides are looking to bounce back from dissapointing results, Arsenal are looking to bounce back from a dissapointing draw at the JJB stadium last Sunday against Wigan, Arsenal never played the way they could and never really got going alot of this due to a pitch that is shared with a local rugby side also and you could see the proof buy the holes & bumps in this terrible pitch, and also Middlesbrough are looking to recover from a shock defeat at their home ground to Coca-Cola Championship Cardiff City.
Arsenal welcome back Van Persie, Toure, Walcott, and Eboue to the squad, Eboue back from a three match ban, whilst Theo is back from a thigh problem, whilst Middlesbrough welcome back former Gunner Jeremie Aliadiere who was unfortunately struck by masses of injuries whilst being with us, Middlesbrough also welcome back new Brazilian hotshot Afonso Alves who has a impressive goal record for former club Herenveen.
Our feaured player Nicklas Bendtner is likely to start from the bench, with Van Persie, Walcott, and Eboue back Wenger will look to bring in the players back from injury, Nicklas started on Sunday against Wigan and was one of our most impressive performers on a very hard day to play football on an a horrendous pitch, it is a shame the time Nicklas did get a rare start that it had to come on that bad pitch where everyone playing could not get a hold off the ball and actually play football, the pitch definetaly slowed the game down, Nicklas will be looking to come off the bench and help the team achieve 3 points over Boro.
My prediction: 4-0 Arsenal 😀 come on arsenal, hopefully Nick can get off the bench and play a part
