- Middlesbrough win
Saturday 21 October 2016
Arsenal have won only one of their last six Premier League fixtures against Middlesbrough (D4 L1).
Arsenal have won six of their last eight home matches against Boro in the Premier League (D2).
This match is on the same day as Arsene Wenger’s 67th birthday. He has won his two previous Premier League fixtures on his birthday, 1-0 v Man City in 2005 and 4-0 v Reading in 2006.
The Gunners have scored one, two, three, four, five, six and seven goals in Premier League matches against Middlesbrough – one of four clubs to do so against another in the PL (also Chelsea v Sunderland, Everton v Sunderland and Manchester City v Norwich City).
