Team News: Fulham
Fulham boss Scott Parker will be grateful to have no fitness worries at all ahead of this game thanks to a fully healthy group ready to go.
We think that The Cottagers will possibly use the 4-3-3 formation in the match and select Alphonse Areola, Joe Bryan, Michael Hector, Tim Ream, Denis Odoi, Tom Cairney, Harrison Reed, Mario Lemina, Ivan Cavaleiro, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Anthony Knockaert.
Team News: Arsenal
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has a number of players out of action. Mattéo Guendouzi (Fitness), Mesut Özil (Back trouble), Shkodran Mustafi (Knee Injury) and Gabriel Martinelli (Knee Injury) miss out here.
We’re of the thinking that The Gunners might elect for a 3-4-3 lineup, starting Bernd Leno, William Saliba, Rob Holding, Kieran Tierney, Hector Bellerin, Granit Xhaka, Daniel Ceballos, Cedric Soares, Willian, Edward Nketiah and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Arsenal have it within them to create a good amount of chances and successful shots on target.
At the other end, Fulham could well struggle scoring but we do fancy them scoring here as well.
We reckon that it will be a fairly comfortable 1-3 winning score for Arsenal at the end of this one.
