Arsenal too good Boro

6:09 am on 27 April 2009

Arsenal have beaten Middlesborough 2-nil to extend their unbeaten sequence in the England football premiership to 20 matches, although they're 12 points beind the leaders Manchester United.

But the Gunners are virtually assured of finishing in fourth place, which means European Champions League football next season.

Middlesborough's 10th consecutive away loss leaves them third from bottom, three points worse off than Hull City who are just above the drop zone.

Arsenal play Manchester United in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final at Old Trafford on Thursday morning.
