Arsenal vs. Boro

Highbury

Saturday 14th January

3:00pm

Arsenal v Boro

With everything that's happened at Highbury over the past 7 days, things are really looking up. Players signing, players agreeing to stay, important players coming back from injury, it all really has been a whirlwind week.

Arsenal go into this game on the back of a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Wigan in the semi final of the Carling Cup. The loss will probably not have any knock on effect to the confidence, as the squad which faced the Latics was mostly made up of youngsters and fringe player. The events of the last week however, may have an effect on the confidence for the better.

It's vital that Arsenal win this game so they can keep up the pressure on the Champions League places.

Arsenal Team News:

Arsenal will be without the services of, Toure [International duty] Van Persie [foot] Campbell [foot] and possibly Bergkamp [don't know]

Arsenal will however, welcome Ashley Cole back into the squad with a suprise call up after coming back from a broken foot. Cole was due to play in a reserve game on Tuesday but with all the injuries the Gunners have suffered Wenger thinks we need him back sooner.

Player to watch: Thierry Henry

After commiting his future to the Arsenal, his confidence will come back. Gone have the drooping shoulders, lack of confidence and sulking........Henry is back :)

Boro Team News:

Boro will be without some geezer and maybe a player or someone.

Downing will make his return.

Player to watch: Yakubu

Always dangerous, fast strong and deadly.
