It’s an all London affair on Sunday as Premier League leaders Arsenal prepare to make the short trip over to high-flying Fulham.
The hosts lost a battle of the capital city last time out as Brentford ran out 3-2 winners, leaving Fulham on the fringes of the European spots.
Arsenal, on the other hand, are seeking a fifth straight domestic victory as they look to improve on their five-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the standings.
Fulham team news
Joao Palhinha remains suspended and will complete his two-game ban here, but there could be a return to Fulham’s midfield as Tom Cairney steps up his return from a foot injury.
Layvin Kurzawa and Neeskens Kebano are both out injured and right-back Cedric Soares cannot play against his parent side.
Fulham predicted lineup vs Arsenal
(4-2-3-1): Leno; Tete, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Reed, Lukic; Willian, Pereira, Solomon; Mitrovic
Arsenal team news
Gabriel Jesus will hope to make the bench here in what would be a minor boost to Arsenal’s attacking crisis. Leandro Trossard and Eddie Nketiah are both out injured so Gabriel Martinelli will likely remain at striker.
Martin Odegaard and Kieran Tierney both missed the midweek game through illness but both are expected to recover in time for this one.
Mohamed Elneny remains out.
Arsenal predicted lineup vs Fulham
(4-3-3): Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Partey, Odegaard, Xhaka; Saka, Martinelli, Nelson
