Fulham vs Arsenal Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Fulham’s disappointing record at Goodison Park continued with the team losing 3-0 against Everton last weekend. The London team offered little in the game and they were soundly beaten with a brace from Gylfi Sigurdsson and a goal from Cenk Tosun. Arsenal made it five consecutive league wins after beating Watford 2-0 at Emirates Stadium. Watford made it difficult for the gunners, but an own goal from Craig Cathcart broke the deadlock with nine minutes left. Mesut Ozil quickly made it two for the gunners with a fine finish. Despite resting a number of key players, Arsenal won 3-0 against Qarabag in Thursday night’s Europa League meeting.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Fulham have the ability to exploit Arsenal’s high defensive line since the team has players who can run across the channels and capitalise on the space behind Arsenal’s defensive line. Ryan Sessegnon, Aleksandar Mitrovic, and Andre Schurrle will undoubtedly be key players to watch. Arsenal have been able to go through an extended winning sequence but they have been troubled by this high defensive line on numerous occasions. This may be a time when Arsenal end up suffering and I would back a draw.

Arsenal have been quite poor at the back while Fulham have a strong offensive line up with the likes of Mitrovic capable of bullying past several defenders. Recent meetings between the two clubs at Craven Cottage have witnessed goals at both ends. I would opt for both teams to score.

Draw – 10/3

Fulham Preview

Fulham may have spent a huge sum of money and have played a relatively well in the first seven matches of the campaign, but manager Slavisa Jokanovic is already being questioned for a return of just one league victory so far this season. Fulham’s lack of wins has become a headache with the season approaching the second international break. The Londoners are just above the bottom three and this would not have been a position owner Shahid Khan had in mind when sanctioning expensive acquisitions in the summer. Aleksandar Mitrovic has been a top player for Fulham and he has five league goals.

Fulham Team News

Alfie Mawson is doubtful for the game, while Timothy Fosu-Mensah (shoulder), Joe Bryan (hamstring), and Neeskens Kebano (ankle) are certainly ruled out.

Arsenal Preview

Unai Emery made a horrendous start to his career at Arsenal with back-to-back defeats against potential title rivals, but he has ensured a quick recovery. Over the last five matches, no team has been able to take more points than Arsenal, who have a 100% record in this period. Still, it remains to be seen if Arsenal can sustain this run through the campaign since the Gunners do not have tremendous amount of strength in depth. The high defensive line adopted under Emery has also come under the spotlight with opposition teams frequently taking advantage of the same.

Arsenal Team News

Carl Jenkinson (ankle), Aaron Ramsey, Laurent Koscielny (Achilles tendon), Petr Cech (hamstring), Ainsley Maitland-Niles (calf), and Konstantinos Mavropanos (groin) are unavailable due to injuries. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is doubtful with illness.
