|Date & Time||Sunday October 7, 2018, 7:00 AM (EDT)|
The Line: Arsenal -154 / Draw +350 / Fulham +400 -- Over/Under: 2.5
Fulham will host Arsenal at Craven Cottage in the next round of the English Premier League.
Fulham had another disappointing defeat last weekend as they lost to Everton away from home at Goodison Park. While the loss was not unexpected, Fulham will be disappointing considering they controlled much of the game and had chances to turn the tie in their favor. It has not been the ideal start to the season for Fulham as the team has only won 1 game and has 5 points after 7 matches. With teams above them pulling away, Fulham need to start getting points if they wish to remain above the relegation zone at the end of the season. This will not be an easy match since Arsenal are a top team but with the game being played at home, Fulham will hope the home crowd can get the team a result.
In contrast, Arsenal have been in great form over the past few weeks as the team has won their last 7 matches. Arsenal defeated Watford last weekend. It was a very impressive win for the Gunners as they controlled 64% of the possession and the likes of Mesut Ozil produced goals. Arsenal are in far better form when compared to Fulham and will feel that they have enough talent to beat the Cottagers away from home.
Fulham and Arsenal have not played any matches in many years as Fulham has not been in the Premier League.
While Fulham are a very talented side, their lack of winning results will start to cost them as I see the Cottagers losing again. Arsenal are one of the elite sides in English football and have more than enough talent to beat Fulham at Craven Cottage. With players such as Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette playing well, I see Arsenal getting all three points from this fixture.
