The big question at the Emirates Stadium is whether or not Arsene Wenger is still in the hot-seat at the start of next season. Judging by recent performances one could be tempted to predict that his days are numbered and much will certainly depend on the outcome of tonight’s clash with Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.
An Arsenal win won’t help his cause too much, however failure to collect all three points on Teesside will almost certainly prove to be the catalyst which sees his removal as Gunners manager.
Arsenal’s last outing saw them thrashed 3-0 by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park and this is itself was widely expected to signal a change of manager, however Wenger lives to fight another day and we believe that his woes can be eased slightly by a win at Middlesbrough.
Few believe that the home side can manage anything from this clash and it is looking increasingly likely that ‘Boro will be plying their trade once again in the Championship following what has been a pretty dismal campaign. The home side have managed just 22 goals this season and we certainly don’t expect them to cause the visitors too many problems on Teesside this weekend.
Indeed the Gunners are one of the top-scoring sides in this season’s top-flight and a one-sided encounter should ensue. Clearly the odds are very much in favour of an away win, however you can back any result in tonight’s match at no cost to yourself, just by opening a new Sky Bet account.
