All about- Fulham vs Arsenal: Including their Form, likely line-up, injury news, head-to-head and predictions



Arsenal fans are looking forward to their next match and will be pleased to know all about Fulham vs Arsenal: Including their Form, likely line-up, injury news, head-to-head and predictions

Can the Cottagers survive against the endemic Gunners? 
In a thrilling encounter last weekend, Arsenal managed to maintain their five-point lead at the top of the Premier League with a stunning 97th-minute victory over Bournemouth. The Gunners staged an impressive comeback after losing two goals with less than 30 minutes remaining.

Under Mikel Arteta, Arsenal have recorded four straight league wins, indicating a full recovery from last month’s shaky spell when they managed just one point from three games, which temporarily slid their position in the league.

Following a 3-2 loss to Brentford in their first London Derby of the week on Monday night, Fulham are preparing for their second Sunday. Defeat to rivals West London ended their eight match unbeaten run.

However, Marco Silva’s side have had an impressive campaign so far, especially considering this is their first season in the Premier League following promotion from the Championship last season. Fulham currently occupy seventh position in the table, just six points off the top four. As a result, they remain strong in contention for an unlikely European spot next season.

Kick off: Sunday 12-03-2023; 14:00 (GMT); 7.30pm (IST)


Form Fulham (all competitions): LWDW

Arsenal Forest form (all competitions): D-W-W-W-W

Player to watch

Fulham: Aleksandar Mitrovic

The Serbian striker was one of Marco Silva’s main attacking spearheads, scoring 11 goals in his 20 appearances. Mitrovic has played well in the Premier League and his form will once again play a huge part in the match.

Arsenal: Gabriel Martinelli

The Brazilian has been in fine form for the Gunners in the Premier League, finding the back of the net on 11 occasions. He has good contact with Saka, Nketiah and Trossard, making Arsenal a big threat up front.

Facts of the match

Fulham are winless against Arsenal in their last nine Premier League games, the most recent being in 2012. Arsenal have won all of their last four London derbies this season with an aggregate score of 8-0 and a win against Fulham will make them the first team in English history to win 5 consecutive London derbies by conceding a goal in each match. Fulham have lost 16 of their last 18 Premier League games to the team that topped the league table at the start of the week.

Injuries and news from the team

The Cottagers will miss the services of Neeskens Kebano, Tom Cairney and Layvin Kurzawa as the players are out with their respective injuries. Joao Paulinha, on the other hand, was disqualified with another yellow card.

Gabriel Jesus has been out for some time due to injury and the situation is likely to remain the same for the next few months. Mohammed Eleny also needs to recover from his knee injury and will not be available for selection. Mikel Arteta should have all the other players fit for the next game.

Head-to-head statistics (in the Premier League)

Estimated composition
Line-up planned by Fulham (4-2-3-1)

round; Head, Diop, Ries, Robinson; Lukic, reed; De Cordova-Reid, Pereira, Willian; mitrovic

Arsenal expected composition (4-2-3-1)

Ramsdale; Weiss, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Viera, Partyy; Martinelli, Odegaard, Saka; Nelson

Fulham’s key striker Mitrovic is back in form which should worry Arsenal’s vulnerable defense as the Gunners face a quick turnaround after their Europa League games in Spain and Portugal.

In their previous match against Brentford, Fulham’s weaknesses were revealed by Palhinha’s absence. However, Arsenal regulars who have rested enough should exploit the same weaknesses as they face another tough test that could determine their qualification for the title.
Prediction: Fulham 1 – 2 Arsenal
