Wenger: Arsenal have not been disastrous

Let's take a closer look.

It's that time of year again when the same old players get linked to the club, only for them never to appear. The only team they have the advantage over is the bottom ranked Sunderland who has collected only 21 points in 32 games. 0-0 draws against both Swansea and Burnley just about summed up their season.

- Arsenal has kept 5 clean sheets in their last 15 Premier League matches, and only 1 in their last 5.

However, the home team leveled just after half-time after the forward clumsily gave away possession with a wayward pass as the Gunners were on the attack.

Middlesbrough manager Steve Agnew says the Frenchman's plight shows just how hard Premier League management can be.

"I called a number that I'd saved in my phone back in 2010", Ozil wrote, as per the Daily Mail. Ben Gibson and Adam Forshaw top the passing segment with 1494 and 1196 total passes.

Defender Calum Chambers can not be a part of the match as he can not face his parent club (he is on loan from Arsenal).

The contract stand-off between Arsenal and Sanchez comes at a time when the Gunners are experiencing a very poor spell of results.

They have slid out of title contention and were humiliated in the Champions League but are also struggling to qualify for next season's Champions League.

"It's a great interval to be united and not divided".

Mesut Ozil also wants a big money contract at the club and Wenger says such deals could have a negative impact on the Arsenal team.

Relegation candidate Middlesbrough will be trying to grab one of their last lifelines to stay in the English Premier League. Their returns will be hugely welcome after the defensive display at Selhurst Park last Monday.

"It's not ideal following a lengthy season", added the Arsenal manager.

It will surely be impossible to sell a two-year deal to the fans as a positive if Arsenal miss out on the Champions League but a win here will at least dampen speculation - that is at least until facing City at Wembley.

- Middlesbrough have not won a match in their last 7.

Alexis Sanchez tops the team in scoring (18 goals), assisting (9) and shots on goal (102).

That is far from what Ozil has done. Granit Xhaka and Ozil top the passing segment with 1700 and 1590 total passes.

David Ospina is still out injured, whilst Lucas Perez remains sidelined. David Ospina (Back injury) is expected to be out until at least April 26. Some people can be destroyed or collapse but I think I and everyone at the club needs to look at it positively.
