Middlesbrough 1-1 Arsenal Highlights
Arsenal’s Premier League title hopes suffered another blow as they were held to a draw at Middlesbrough.
Emmanuel Adebayor headed Arsenal in front after 17 minutes from Cesc Fabregas’ corner.
But Middlesbrough hit back and former Arsenal striker Jeremie Aliadiere headed a fine equaliser from Tuncay’s cross 12 minutes later.
Robin van Persie wasted a good chance after the break, while Arsenal keeper Manuel Almunia denied Stewart Downing.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will view this as two points wasted as they try to keep in touch with the title pace-setters – seeing his side dominate possession but fail to take advantage.
Boro boss Gareth Southgate saw his revamped defence hold firm in the closing stages to earn a valuable point.
