Arsenal vs. Fulham Preview: Potential Lineups, Prediction, and Key Stats
As they face an out-of-sorts Fulham team, Arteta and Arsenal will try to make it three victories in a row.
In the following game, Mikel Arteta resumed his team experiments. However, his team worked incredibly hard to defeat Crystal Palace and get three points. Furthermore, the match at Selhurst Park had its share of drama, but Martin Odegaard’s penalty in the second half was enough to win.
In their last 16 home games against Fulham in all competitions, Arsenal is unbeaten.
In their last 12 Premier League games at the Emirates, Arsenal has only managed two clean sheets.
In their last seven home Premier League games against Fulham, Arsenal has only preserved one clean sheet.
In seven of their last eight games against Fulham in all competitions, Arsenal has scored at least two goals.
In 30 league matches, Fulham has never defeated Arsenal on the road (D6 L24).
Additionally, Arsenal’s upcoming opponent is an ineffective Fulham. Arteta will undoubtedly aim for another victory to maintain the team’s perfect record. The Gunners will want to put pressure on Manchester City by winning this match and taking the lead in the standings. For their important matchup against Manchester United the following weekend, Arsenal is well-prepared.
Arsenal Team News & Tactics
The removal of Tomiyasu could result in significant changes to their look and feel. However, Zinchenko is the most apparent choice to take the position of the Japanese full-back. In addition, Arteta might rearrange his midfield and might give up Eddie Nketiah or Kai Havertz.
Thomas Partey, who has started as a right-back in the first two games, might switch to the base of the midfield. In the middle of the field, Declan Rice will play on the left side. Arteta expects Zinchenko to fulfill the reversible duties that fall to his full-back. The manager will then need to select his first-choice striker, though.
Gabriel Magalhaes might make his first start of the season if Zinchenko is to start. William Saliba and Gabriel will both occupy the center position. All other team members will remain on the field, and Ben White will play right back as usual. However, Arteta might select Havertz above Nketiah if he were to select a striker.
