Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil celebrates against Middlesbrough

ARSENAL: As mentioned by Wenger in the pre-match press conference, defender Laurent Koscielny and goalkeeper Petr Cech have a 80% chance of returning for Monday's match, while David Ospina and Lucas Perez remain on the sidelines.

Time is completely running out for Arsene Wenger to try and at least save the Arsenal's season before he decides to part ways with the club in the most embarrassing manner.

Can't win over them all I guess... It's good for the confidence.

Ozil's 71st-minute victor put Arsenal within seven points of fourth-placed Manchester City, and Wenger's men have a game in hand.

- Arsenal picked up only their second win in their last nine away league games (D1 L6), though both wins came against teams now in the relegation zone (also Swansea City).

Attacker Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain said Arsenal had allowed their standards to slip, having gone on a four-match losing run away from home in the league.


"We needed to take responsibility for that and we've done that this week between ourselves".

"What we've done hasn't been good enough".

"I think Middlesbrough came out second half and made it a lot more hard and they went very direct at the end but all in all it was a new system and we have got the three points with it and that is all that matters", the 23-year-old said.

"It's a massive honour to play for a team like Arsenal".

Bellerin was sidelined for a month in November due to an ankle injury that resurfaced in January causing him to miss Arsenal's FA Cup win over Preston North End and league win over Swansea City.
