Arsenal dealt Alexandre Lacazette injury blow vs Fulham

Arsenal dealt Alexandre Lacazette injury blow vs Fulham

Arsenal held by Fulham

Arsenal played host to Fulham in Sunday’s opening Premier League clash.

After Newcastle beat West Ham on Saturday, Fulham started the day a full seven points from safety, with Burnley, in 17th, also boasting a game in hand on Scott Parker’s side.

So, the Cottagers were aware that nothing but a win would do when they faced off with the Gunners, who, unlike Fulham, had very little to play for on Sunday.

Arsenal began the day 10 points adrift of the Champions League places, and seven points off 6th.

And, when all was said and done at the Emirates, the hosts remained well off the pace of the current top-six.

The north Londoners were somewhat unlucky to see a goal ruled out for the tightest of offside calls, just before the break.

However, Mikel Arteta’s side went on to create very few clear-cut chances after that, and only salvaged a point late on when Eddie Nketiah cancelled out Josh Maja’s penalty with essentially the last kick of the game.

The result, though, was not the most concerning issue for Arsenal on Sunday.

That instead came 20 minutes from time, when Alexandre Lacazette limped off, before being seen heading straight down the tunnel.

The Frenchman has been in great form of late, with Arsenal now facing an anxious wait to find out if Lacazette will be fit enough for their Europa League semi-final meetings with Villarreal later this month.
