Fulham vs. Arsenal Match Analysis and Prediction

After barely a month of FA Cup and Community Shield action, Arsenal is back in the opening fixtures this weekend. The side will be traveling to the Craven Cottage to take on newly-promoted Fulham with kickoff at 2:30 pm.

Last season was a forgettable one for the Gunners finishing eighth in the table. It was the worst run for the North London side 25 years ago. However, the end was an impressive one for the side under coach Arteta.

The side managed to win the FA Cup from Chelsea and snatch up a Community Shield win from Liverpool. The FA Cup win gives Arsenal a direct entry into the Europa League. It was a trouble-filled season that witnessed three managerial changes.

Arsenal is looking for a threat for a top-four finish depending on their activity in the open transfer window. The Gunners secured the signing of former Blues Willian, Gabriel Magalhaes, and on-loan Ceballos back.

Fulham enjoyed a successful playoff win against Brentford that saw the side promoted to the Premier League. The Cottagers played only one friendly against side MK Dons ending in a 2-2 draw. Arsenal played the same MK Dons and finished in a 4-1 win with a youth splash ruling the second half, netting three goals.
