Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez struck to give an unimpressive Arsenal victory over Middlesbrough at the Riverside.
Boro opened proceedings in fighting form, applying pressure on the visitors and registering a number of attempts on the fit-again Petr Cech's goal before Arsenal even threatened. However, it was the Londoners who led going into the interval courtesy of a sublime strike by Alexis Sanchez from a free-kick. Aside from that action though, the Chilean was quiet all evening, misplacing a number of passes. The hosts struck back after the break through Alvaro Negredo, who finished off an exquisite ball by Stewart Downing. However, in spite of Boro's best efforts, Arsenal's quality shone through even though they never threatened to break into a real sweat. Ramsey controlled the ball with his chest to assist Ozil for the winner from close range. Worries still remain for Arsene Wenger and fantasy managers alike but Arsenal limp on. Apr 17 - 4:56 PM
