Premier League leaders Arsenal take on a high-flying Fulham team with the goal of extending their lead at the top of the standings.
When Brentford and Fulham played in a 3-2 thriller at Craven Cottage, Fulham’s seven-game unbeaten record was cruelly snapped.
João Palhinha’s absence might have been a significant factor in the defeat. Fulham’s transition from the Championship this season has been nothing short of a fairytale, as seen by their current League standing of seventh.
A six-game scoring streak is a terrific statistic before the approach of a side like Arsenal, who is having trouble keeping clean sheets, even though a slot on the European table appears to be far from attainable.
Despite being at the top of the Premier League standings, Arsenal is causing more and more worry with each match.
The Gunners’ inability to save set-pieces nearly cost them on multiple occasions, but Reiss Nelson’s injury-time goal against Bournemouth kept Arteta’s squad alive.
On Sunday, the North London team will play at Craven Cottage, so Arteta will try to get his defence ready for another hard struggle.
The Gunners brag of having won six of their previous seven away games, making them the league’s most successful away team. Arsenal would also like to repeat their performance from the 2-1 home victory in the two teams’ previous meeting in August.
Lineups for Fulham vs. Arsenal are known.
Leno, Tete, Adarabioyo, Ream, Robinson, Reed, Lukic, Reid, Pereira, Solomon, and Mitrovic make up the Fulham Lineup (4-2-3-1).
White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Odegaard, Partey, and Xhaka make up the Arsenal XI (4-3-3) along with Saka, Martinelli, and Trossard.
