Fulham vs Arsenal betting tips: Premier League match preview & predictions

Fulham vs Arsenal prediction: Fulham 0-1 Arsenal

Arsenal come into this one with bags of confidence, but Fulham will be no pushovers at home.

Slavisa Jokanovic’s side tend to defend a lot better at home than they do on the road.

Fulham should be a lot fresher than their opponents, who arrived back in London early on Friday morning. Arsenal’s match on Thursday was their furthest ever away match in terms of distance.

Fulham vs Arsenal: Who will win?

Arsenal are 13/20 favourites to continue their impressive run of form. Fulham are 17/4 to win the match while the draw is priced at 10/3.

The Gunners have kept three clean sheets in their last four. Either side keeping a clean sheet is 13/8.

Alexandre Lacazette is expected to be the focal point of Arsenal’s attack again on Sunday. He’s 9/2 to open the scoring and 1/1 to score anytime in the 90.

Fulham vs Arsenal Premier League match preview

Arsenal make the short journey to Craven Cottage for Sunday’s London derby against Fulham.

Fulham are 17th in the table following last weekend’s 3-0 defeat away at Goodison Park. The Lily Whites held Everton until half-time before a defensive collapse in the second period.

In their last home match, Fulham were fortunate to pick up a point against Watford. Aleksandar Mitrovic scored his fifth Premier League goal of the campaign and will no doubt be Fulham’s biggest threat again on Sunday.

Fulham have won one, drawn one and lost one of their three Premier League matches played at home, conceding five and scoring five.

Andre Schurrle’s strike against Brighton at the start of September has been nominated for the Premier League Goal of the Month.

Eight in a row

Arsenal won for the eighth match in a row on Thursday night.

The Gunners beat Azerbaijani side Qarabag 3-0 in Baku to remain top of their Europa League group. Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Emile Smith Rowe and Matteo Guendouzi all scored their first ever Arsenal goals.

18-year-old Smith Rowe became the first player born this century to score for the club. There have already been 12 different goal scorers for Arsenal this season across all competitions.

Arsenal are sixth in the league table following last weekend’s 2-0 home win over Watford. A late own goal by Craig Cathcart was followed up by a Mesut Ozil winner to secure Arsenal’s fifth league win on the spin.

The only manager to win four out of four in September, Unai Emery has been nominated for the Premier League Manager of the month award.

With two goals and two assists in September, Alexandre Lacazette is up for the Premier League Player of the Month award.

Curiously, Sunday’s match will be the first time this season (10 matches) that Arsenal won’t be wearing their home kit.

Arsenal have won 18 of the 26 Premier League meetings between these sides, losing just three. However, the Gunners have only won one of their last eight away London derbies.

The last time Arsenal won nine consecutive competitive matches was back in April 2015.

Emery experimented with three defenders in the first half against Qarabag before returning to flat back-four in the second half.

The Gunners will almost certainly play with their usual 4-2-3-1 formation on Saturday. Sead Kolasinac made his first appearance of the season after recovering from a knee injury.

Arsenal fielded a stronger than expected side in Baku. Sokratis played 90 minutes while Nacho Monreal played 45 minutes. Lucas Torreira, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette came on as second-half substitutes.

Hector Bellerin, Granit Xhaka and Shkodran Mustafi did not feature but still made the six-hour journey for the match.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan should return to the squad. The Armenian decided against travelling due to political tensions between his country and Azerbaijan.

Pierre-Emerick Aubamyenag, Aaron Ramsey also come back into contention after the duo were left out of Thursday night’s squad.

Bernd Leno will continue in goal as Petr Cech remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Ainsley Maitland-Nile has returned to training but Sunday’s game will come too soon for him.
