Every game a final for struggling Boro, says Valdes

Boro are the league's lowest scorers and have not won a league game since mid-December Boro are the league's lowest scorers and have not won a league game since mid-December

Leeds have made more than a few high-profile transfer mistakes over the years but, in hindsight, perhaps letting Clayton leave on the cheap is one they will regret the most.

But former Arsenal midfielder Merson is backing the Gunners to end their poor form on the road in the Premier League with a much-needed win at Middlesbrough on Monday night.

Agnew's side are six points adrift of safety having failed to win in the league for nearly four months, while they have scored just 22 goals - two fewer than Everton's Romelu Lukaku.

"I think we were focused and committed and you could see that we did not play with full confidence during some moments in the game", Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said.

"There are more points to play for and nobody in the bottom three is pulling up trees and running clear...you have to keep believing".

Leicester City have joined three Premier League giants in the race to sign Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson, according to the Mirror. "We need to get a win as soon as possible and change the face of it".

"We kept going, kept getting into unsafe positions and in the end we came away with the three points".

ALEXIS SANCHEZ made one young fan's day after Arsenal's win over Middlesbrough.

"Even when we conceded the second we still had chances when the ball went into the box".

"We have to make our own luck".

However, the report does state that several of the elite clubs in English football - including Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur as well as Chelsea - are keeping a close eye on the centre-back's situation, although given the tough negotiator that Boro Chairman Steve Gibson is, an offer in the region of £30m is likely to be required from any side interested.
