After the Champions league draw at Schalke 2-2,in the 11th round of the English Premier league Arsenal at home will welcome their city rivals Fulham who in front of this match have an exact number of won points as the Gunners,15.
Otherwise, last year’s Fulham was slightly better in mutual encounters, because at home they celebrated with 2:1, while at the Emirates was a draw – 1:1.
Of course that this mutual negative score from last season now will only be an additional motive for Arsenal footballers, but still their last games really does not inspire too much security that this Saturday the Gunners can win this match easily.
This season Arsenal plays very in variable form,and under manager Wenger,this time they made a worst start ever in the English Premier league,by winning only 15 points from 10 rounds.
Not so good stat for the guests,is that they never won against Arsenal on away matches,where they draw 4 four times,and lost 22 matches.At Craven Cottage last season,the current Fulham´s coach Martin Jol has entered his first victory over Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger for this match can’t count on injured goalkeepers Szczesny and Fabianski, defender Gibbs, midfielders Diaby and Rosicky and strikers Oxlade-Chamberlain and Gervinho, while Wilshere is suspended due to red card in match with Man Utd (1-2).
As for Fulham for this meeting dont compete injured midfielders Richardson, Frei and Davies and defenders Kelly and Senderos.
Arsenal Probable lineup 4-2-3-1: Mannone;Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Vermaelen;Arteta, Ramsey ;Cazorla;Walcott, Giroud, Podolski
Fulham Probable lineup 4-5-1: Schwarzer;Riether, Hughes, Hangeland, Riise;Duff, Baird, Sidwell, Diarra, Ruiz;Berbatov
Match Prediction : Given that this season both teams are playing an extremely offensive football, certainly in their mutual duel the most realistic is to expect a completely open competition and a lot of goals. Over 2,5 goals.
Another tip here to take,considering their statistics at the Emirates would be Arsenal to win,or to score more than 1 goal.
