Taking a chance on Adama Traore doesn't pay off for Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough found themselves on the wrong side of a couple of key moments as they went down 2-1 at the Riverside to Arsenal.

With a draw not being of use to either side and with the game delicately poised at 1-1, Steve Agnew took a chance and substituted on the frustrating starlet Adama Traore to give Boro some presence in the final third. But it backfired, as the pacy winger lost possession in a key area, leading to Mesut Ozil's winning goal.

Friend, Boro come up empty at Stoke as pressure mounts on Karanka

Middlesbrough's woes continue with relegation seeming ever more likely after a lacklustre display at the bet365 Stadium. Despite fielding a positive-looking lineup, Aitor Karanka's men barely turned up in the first half and struggled to compete in the middle of the park.

It took a while but Middlesbrough finally broke through against Sheffield Wednesday, kicking on to win 3-0.

Middlesbrough cruised into the fourth round of the FA Cup after dispatching Sheffield Wednesday by a score of three goals to nil.

The reduction in numbers and increasing attacking intent from Wednesday played into Boro's hands as they were able to exploit...

Boro show steel after conceding but Ayala's goal is not enough vs. Palace

Middlesbrough's unbeaten start to life in the Premier League came to an abrupt end at the hands of a clinical Crystal Palace on Saturday. Uncharacteristic errors from some of Boro's usually reliable players offered Alan Pardew's men the chance to kickstart their stuttering season with a 2-1 victory on Teesside. A late surge from Aitor Karanka's side was not enough to steal a share of the points and this result will serve as a wakeup call with even tougher tests to come.
