Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate will welcome midfielder Gary O'Neil back from suspension for Sunday's Barclays Premier League trip to Arsenal.

O'Neil is back following two games on the sidelines after reaching 10 bookings for the season.

French midfielder Didier Digard, who has been out for two months with quadricep and medial ligament injuries, could be involved after playing 65 minutes for the reserves in midweek, but Chris Riggott (ankle) is a doubt and Emanuel Pogatetz (knee) remains on the casualty list.

Team (from): Jones, Turnbull, Hoyte, McMahon, Taylor, Grounds, Wheater, Riggott, Huth, Hines, Aliadiere, Tuncay, Bates, O'Neil, Walker, Shawky, Downing, Johnson, Digard, Alves, King.
