After an emphatic win in the Champions league on Wednesday we now face Fulham at the Emirates on Saturday. While Arsenal has won five in a row in the Premier League, Fulham has just four points in as many matches. With the big win against Dortmund one wound feel its goint to be an easy win for Arsenal. And that’s exactly what we think too. Our team has been on the best form since October and are at 7th position in the league while Fulham sit 16th, two points outside the drop zone, maybe due to the fact that they had change in their Manager and playing in the Europa League.
Fulham has had a very inconsistent season. While they have conceded 15 goals this season but they have kept the second most number of clean sheets in the league with five. But its not going to be easy facing a team that are unbeaten in 9 games in all competitions and have registered their place in the second round of Champions League 12 years in a row in awesome form!
Arsenal also need to make sure that the best team plays with Fulham with Van Persie in the team because of his current dream-like run. Persie goes into this game with 13 league goals and he would want to increase his tally to make sure he wins the Barclays Player of the month again for November. The month of November has never been nice to us in the last few years but this season it has been different and Arsenal are on fire.
Our prediction for the team is the best team available at present that played Norwich and Dortmund. But I wouldn’t be surprised to see Arshavin coming in for one of the forwards but our team for today is below:
We still hope for Wenger to make some changes to the team as we have a big match against Manchester City in the Carling Cup Quarter Final next week. But we will wait and see. With the team predicted here Arsenal should look to win this game 2-0 but the scoreline depends on the team selected today and the fit players available for the team..
Do give us your feedback and predictions for the team and what u think might happen at the Emirates today.
