Jack back training, Alexis might be left out and Ramsey out for a couple of weeks.

I know it's not that hard, but Boro beat City at the Etihad so they've shown they have the quality to pull off results against prem teams. Not going to be a comfortable game at all, play a weakened team and we'll be punished for it.

Middlesbrough play good, counter attacking football and if Arsenal play a weakened team with no Coq au vin for example, then I can see them being exposed. Should be an entertaining game!

We shouldn't mix the team up too much. We don't have a game in midweek. There's no need to take unnecessary risks though, so I doubt Sanchez will play after his recent injury.

A guid dram
Boro are running well and have nothing to lose so will go for it unless they choose to rest players to aid their promotion bid. I still think even if Arsenal play a slightly weakened side though, they'll win.

Arsenal 3 - 1 Boro

Nice to see 'Boro doing so well in the Championship—some defensive record they have and they looked a handful at the Ethiad. I've had a soft spot for them ever since Ray Parlour went there. Juninho and Mendieta were fun to watch, too.

I think they'll make it difficult, but we'll win 2-0. Be nice for Welbeck to be among the goals. Wouldn't mind seeing Akpom and Zelalem getting runs out if we're up by 2.

Szczesny, Chambers, Gabriel, Koscielny, Gibbs, Flamini, Cazorla, Welbeck, Ozil, Alexis, Giroud

Looks like a 4-3-3 with Cazorla and Ozil playing through the middle. I like the team selection apart from Flamini and Chambers.

That was no bother at all.
