Premier League: Arsenal vs Middlesbrough

Arsenal vs Middlesbrough Betting Tip and Predictions. In the Round 9 in Premier League,  Arsenal host Middlesbrough at Emirates. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Arsenal vs Middlesbrough.


Arsenal started this season in Premier League very good and after nine rounds they are sharing the first position with Manchester City. Home team lost only one game this season and it was the defeat at the start of the season against Liverpool. After that Arsenal started to play amazing and they have 6 wins in a row in Premier League. Three days ago they have played in the group phase of the UEFA Champions League and smashed Ludogorets 6-0. Their attack is working amazing this season and they have already scored 19 league goals. Walcott has exploded this season and he has already scored 5 goals, Sanchez hit the net 4 times, while Mesut Ozil scored 3 goals. Against Ludogorets, Ozil made a hat-trick and he should be the old one in the rest of the season. Without any doubt, home side play amazing and they are favorites to take another three points against Middlesbrough.

Middlesbrough promoted in Premier League last season and their main goal is to avoid relegation and stay in the best football league in England. They are standing near the relegation zone and they have to improve their performance in order to be in the safer zone. The match against Arsenal is not the perfect time to count on points, but they have nothing to lose and for sure they will try to stay unbeaten. In the next round they will host Bournemouth and that’s the event where they will looking for the points. In the last 6 matches in Premier League they lost 4 times (0-2-4). Even Fulham, the club from Championship, eliminated them in the EFL Cup. Visitors don’t have big chances to avoid defeat at Emirates, but they will try at least to score.
