Arsenal and Fulham face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at Emirates Stadium. When these two teams faced off in April 2021, the two teams played to a 1-1 draw.
Arsenal has been almost perfect so far this season, and they currently sit in 1st place in the standings, having picked up nine points. Arsenal has been dominant so far this season, and they have had wins over Crystal Palace, Leicester City, and Bournemouth. In the last game against Bournemouth, they had two goals from Martin Odegaard in the first 11 minutes, and William Saliba added another goal in the 54th minute on the way to the victory. Arsenal had six shots on target and 59 percent of the possession. Arsenal are mostly healthy heading into this game, but they will be without the services of Reiss Nelson, who is currently dealing with a thigh injury.
On the other side of this matchup is Fulham, who currently sits in 7th place in the standings having picked up five points. Fulham has played to a couple of draws and a victory so far this season. Fulham started off the season with draws against Liverpool and the Wolves. In the last game against Brentford, Fulham opened up the scoring in the 1st minute with a goal by Bobby Reid. The defense did have some lapses in the middle of the game, but Aleksander Mitrovic scored a goal in the 90th minute to secure the victory. Fulham only had 43 percent of the possession, but nine shots on goal helped them secure the victory. Fulham are expected to be without Harry Wilson and Manor Solomon for this game.
I expect Fulham is going to give Arsenal some major issues here. Fulham has looked good this season and their offense is going to give the Arsenal defense some issues. It might not be enough to win, but it’s going to be enough to keep this game close. Back Fulham +1.5 to cash here.
