Football: Weekeng guide to the premiership - Middlesbrough v Arsenal Last season: no fixture
Saturday 24 April 1999
Dennis Bergkamp is a major doubt for Arsenal. The Dutch striker, who bounced back from missing a penalty in Arsenal's FA Cup semi-final defeat last week to become their top scorer this season on 16 goals (with one of the five against Wimbledon), has a groin injury. He was substituted after 70 minutes on Monday and must face a fitness test. Nicolas Anelka, who was rested for the Wimbledon game, will return, if Bergkamp misses out, to partner Nigerian Nwankwo Kanu in attack. Right-back Lee Dixon returns after an ankle injury but centre-back Martin Keown is suspended and Steve Bould steps in. Bergkamp's injury casts a doubt over his availability for the Netherlands' friendly against Morocco next Wednesday.
