Should Arsenal start with Akpom against Middlesbrough?

I first thought it was a bit strange that Arsene Wenger dropped Olivier Giroud to the bench against Leicester in midweek, and even more surprised that Alexis was moved into the centre-forward position, but Le Boss reckons hat many of his Arsenal team were suffering from fatigue after the Spurs game.

THREE Arsenal Myths BUSTED by yesterday’s win over Aston Villa

A happy day but let us re-group and judge after next weekend by JT1

Arsenal need to be careful about being OVER-confident!

The Gunners are preparing to face Aston Villa tomorrow in the knowledge that both Tottenham and Man United have already gained three points today, but on paper this seems an easy win for Arsenal, but Arsene Wenger has warned the players about being over-confident.
