The Gunners have been through a historically bad patch under Arsene Wenger but Boro are unlikely to threaten, making Betfair's boosted odds generous

Arsenal limp into their Premier League tie against Middlesbrough badly needing a boost. After losing four successive away games for the first time under Arsene Wenger, the Gunners have slipped into seventh and risk missing out on Europe altogether next season.

The days in which they were able to inflict 7-0 wins on the Riverside Stadium outfit may be over, but with Middlesbrough in dire straits themselves, Monday’s clash represents a serious opportunity for Arsenal to issue a response on their ambitions as they hope to power through the final weeks of the season.

With that in mind, Betfair’s enhanced offer to new customers for an away win at the price of 7/1 (8.0) offers serious value. Last at 8/15 (1.53), the boost is well worth taking up on Monday's favourites to pull level with Everton in the standings.

Wenger’s embattled men will be aware that this is a golden opportunity to earn much-needed points to kickstart their season again, having scored in 16 of their last 17 games versus Boro. Indeed, the hosts have conceded more goals against Arsenal than against any other opponent in the Premier League (62 in 29 games).

Defensive frailties may have marked Arsenal’s defeat against Crystal Palace last time out, but the Gunners’ upcoming opponents are hardly in a position to capitalise themselves having scored just 22 goals all term and attempted just 78 shots on target in 31 games for less than three a match on average.

Against the least threatening side in the Premier League this season, Arsenal can be expected to remain solid and still outscore their opponents - making the price of 7/1 (8.0) for new Betfair customers certainly appealing on them to pile more misery on prime relegation candidates Middlesbrough.
