Arsenal are on a six game winning run in the Barclays Premier League and should be considered favorites to make it seven when they face Middlesbrough at the Emirates tomorrow.
As far as the team news is concerned, the Gunners have six players injured at the moment. Santi Cazorla still has the chance to feature but he faces a late fitness test.
It will not come as any surprise if Elneny starts in place of the Spaniard in the central midfield. With Granit Xhaka out due to suspension, expect Francis Coquelin to return and partner the former Basel star in the center of the park.
The likes of Petr Cech, Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi started on the bench in the midweek Champions League game against Ludogorets. The trio are expected to return to the starting lineup as well against Middlesbrough.
Here is Wenger’s probable 4-2-3-1 XI for Arsenal vs Middlesbrough.
