Home » 31/12 Football Predictions: Arsenal looking to bounce back against Fulham Plus Other Odds

Football Prediction 

Arsenal will be traveling to Craven Cottage to face Fulham as they seek to make up some ground in the Premier League title chase.

While Fulham opened December with two consecutive wins, they’ve crashed down in their recent games where they have had worrying trends more so defensively. They haven’t scored any goal in the last 270 minutes and will have to be at their best if they are to topple one of the best teams in the league.

Arsenal lost to West Ham in their last outing and have no room for more mistake as they seek to wrestle the title from Manchester City who have played a game less and leaders Liverpool who doesn’t look like regressing soon. 

H2H / Stats 

When Fulham and Arsenal met for their reverse Premier League meeting on August 26th, Sunday’s opponents played out a 2-2 draw at the Emirates.

Team News 

Hosts Fulham are once again sweating over the fitness of former Arsenal attacker Willian. Likewise, not making a single appearance since returning from November’s international break, Adama Traore will not feature here. However, after serving a three-match suspension, Mexico international Raul Jimenez should make a full return at Craven Cottage. Ex-Leicester defender Timothy Castagne could replace Kenny Tete at right-back.

Thomas Partey might be inching towards a return for Arsenal from his long-term muscle injury but he is far from being ready. Likewise, Arteta’s men will also be unable to call upon the trio of Jurrien Timber, Fabio Vieira and Takehiro Tomiyasu this weekend. Kai Havertz could be handed a full return here after serving his one-match game ban. 

Probable Line-Up

Fulham XI: Leno (GK), Castagne, Adarabioyo, Bassey, Robinson, Palhinha, Cairney, Iwobi, Perreira, Reid, Jimenez

Arsenal XI:  Raya (GK) White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Rice, Odegaard, Haverts, Saka, G. Jesus, Trossard

Verdict 

Arsenal might have slipped against West Ham in their last outing but they are coming against a Fulham side who have a lot of troubles of their own. This is  a perfect match for Mikel Arteta to bounce back
