Arsenal vs Fulham Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 4-1.

The Premier League festive action concludes over the New Year’s Day midweek schedule with an all-London affair between top four chasing Arsenal and Fulham, who are battling relegation, in a game the hosts are strong favourites to win.

Predictions

This is a clash between two sides with vastly differing ambitions this season but who both are badly in need of points to meet those aims.

Arsenal have won just two of their last five Premier League games and four of their last 10 as they remain in fifth position in the table.

Fulham meanwhile have won just one match of their last 14 in all competitions but have lost just two of their last five matches as their form appears to have turned for the better, despite a lack of victories.

The visitors are firmly rooted in the relegation zone and it is tough to see them picking up any points from this fixture but Arsenal’s patchy recent form may give them hope.

The hosts will be favourites to triumph due to possessing home advantage, superior form and quality over Fulham.

The home side are favourites to win this game although it may not be comfortable – a 2-0 triumph for the North London side would appear a likely outcome from it.
