Middlesbrough vs Arsenal EPL 2007-08: Live Updates

Middlesbrough and Arsenal are going to face each other in their 16th match of English Premier League 2007-2008. Arsenal now leads in the point table with 37 points. In contrast, Middlesbrough stands at the 17th place with 11 points. So, they are still in the danger circle of relegation. Middlesbrough vs Arsenal match is going to be held at the home ground of Middlesbrough, Riverside Stadium on 9 December. It is true that Arsenal still leads in the point table but Manchester United and Chelsea are breathing on the neck of Arsenal with 36 and 34 points respectively. So, at this situation, any slip off will cost Arsenal to lose their first place in the point table.

On the other hand, Middlesbrough could not win any match in their last 11 matches. Thus, they are now being threatened of getting out of the premier league after this season. So, they need to bound back from now on to ensure their presence in the next season. Now, ahead of the big match against Arsenal, they must be inspired to play all out to clinch at least a point. Arsenal has been playing excellently this season so far. So, Middlesbrough will obviously face a strong challenge in the match. However, they will get the home support and thus play their best to outperform the Gunners.

However, both the teams have some injury problems. To begin with, Arsenal will miss out some of the key players against Middlesbrough. Midfielder Cesc Fabregas is suffering from hamstring injury. Another midfielder Abou Diaby will miss the match because of his back injury. Two other midfielders- Mathieu Flamini and Aliaksandr Hleb are suffering from thigh and hamstring injury respectively. Forward Robin van Persie is yet to be fit fully to take part in the next match against Middlesbrough. So, it seem that a number of key midfielders are absent in the Arsenal line up at this moment. Now, Captain Gilberto Silva and Tomáš Rosický will have huge responsibility in the midfield.

It is a bad news for the Arsenal fans and obviously good news for the opposition teams. However, Middlesbrough can not have that much fancy over the injury news of Arsenal. Middlesbrough also has some injurious players including midfielder Julio Arca and defender Robert Huth who have fallen in knee and ankle injury. However, goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer is expected to appear in the first line up despite his thumb injury.

However, it is true that Arsenal is favorite in the match. Their current performance is really outstanding. They have not lost any match so far in English Premier League 2007-2008. So, Middlesbrough has to play something special to resist Arsenal in their home ground. However, Middlesbrough should play positively instead of targeting for a draw. I hope that football fans will enjoy the match.

I know that many of you are now eagerly waiting for the match. However, some of you will not be able to stick to the television because of your personal or professional work. So, here I am giving some links of websites where you will get the online live score and updates of Middlesbrough vs Arsenal:
