Three reasons Boro will cause an upset against Arsenal
Last season’s second-placed Championship side kicked off with a draw against Stoke and a win over Sunderland, but they’ve picked up just two points from their subsequent six games and are yet to claim victory at the Riverside Stadium.
Arsenal‘s season has almost been a negative (or should that be positive) reflection – losing on the opening day against Liverpool but annihilating everything in their path since, leaving them separated from the Premier League’s summit by goal difference alone.
With that in mind, Gunners fans are likely already counting their eggs in anticipation of another win at the Emirates Stadium when Boro travel to north London for Saturday’s 3pm kick off.
But we at FootballFanCast aren’t quite so convinced; in fact, we’re tipping Aitor Karanka’s boys for a shock win – putting an epic dent in Arsenal’s title bid.
