Chelsea have further downed the already-relegated Middlesbrough after thumping the latter in 3-0 encounter. The visitors hit the rock bottom this season and the recent loss to the Blues has just confirmed M’boro’s meek relegation to the Championship.
Boro have proved to be stubborn in defense on many occasions, yet have been restricted to achieve success due to lack of quality finishing almost all the time.
Middlesbrough see the end of the Premier League season by hosting to Southampton and trailing for a possible win against Liverpool.
Facing off Arsenal, Southampton suffered in 2-0 defeat as the Gunners are not yet done in pursuing Champions League.
The mid-table team rarely showed threat and apparently has been weak in attacking. They couldn’t find rhythm and are without clinical edge against EPL’s top six.
However, Claude Puel expressed that his team deserved at least a draw.
The surge of struggle continues for the club as they fight off Middlesbrough on Saturday.
Middlesbrough could have pulled off a lifeline had the club knew how to cure the roots of their failure in the early stretch of this season. It has always been pointed to creating quality finishing. But their failures just kept sucking the life out of the team.
As they M’boro host to the Saints, Steve Agnew and his squad are all well aware that they are fighting against all odds.
