Middlesbrough boss Steve Agnew: We can be the new Leicester

With last season's Premier League title-winning duo Wes Morgan and Robert Huth the wrong side of 30, it would appear that the Foxes are making efforts to bolster that area of the squad after struggling defensively domestically this year.

Agnew said: "The players were unbelievable in terms of their effort and commitment and attitude towards the game". He's won everything and what he does bring is the bigger the game for Victor Valdes, the more he responds because his career tells you that.

Here are five key players to watch on Monday night as the Gunners look for a elusive victory.

Gibson has also seen his talent recognised at global level after being called-up to Gareth Southgate's senior England squad for the World Cup qualifier against Lithuania last month.

Middlesbrough are in grave danger of being relegated to the Championship yet have one of the best defensive records in the league, conceding only 37 goals. They believe that Leicester City, Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool are all keen to secure his signature in the upcoming transfer window.

"Ben has had a terrific season and he's got a fantastic future in front of him", the interim manager said.

Agnew has been boosted by the return of George Friend and Gaston Ramirez from calf and ankle injuries respectively, and his only absentee for the game will be Calum Chambers, who is ineligible to play against his parent club under the terms of his loan agreement.

"But he's a Middlesbrough player, he's a Middlesbrough boy and Ben is focused on only one thing, and that's the game against Arsenal on Monday night".
