56' Boro are on a counter once again and and it's somehow cleared away for a corner by the Arsenal defence. The corner is a waste as it curls out evne before it entered the box.

...

Alright then, time for the 2nd half!

...

HALF TIME: Arsenal 0-0 Middlesbrough!

The Gunners have most of the ball but Boro are the ones who have gone close more often. Should have scored on a couple of occations but Cech-post was there to deny them!

...

ONE ADDED MINUTE!

...

...

40' Thre is a reason why Karanka is Jose Mourinho's best disciple! He's clearly spent a great amount of time in studying's Arsenal's way of attacking! No space for Sanchez and Ozil has gone missing!

38' Mustafi is back on the field and puts a brilliant ball to release Walcott down the right wing. His cross meets a Boro defender's head but he puts it behind for a corner.

...

...

34' The corner is not a dangerous one and is cleared away with ease. Ayala with some dangerous play at the half line as he dribbles past Walcott and Sanchez despite being the last man! Had he missed it, it would have been the speed demons vs Valdes!
