Arsenal vs Fulham Preview

It may have been well documented prior to Arsenal's game with Fulham, that Arsenal have never lost to Fulham at home in any competition. That record ought to carry on, Arsenal are desperate for a win, a shoddy display at Manchester United was met with a disappointing draw in Schalke in midweek. It's fair to say late October and November, hasn't seen Arsenal show what their really capable of. 

Arsenal will be without Jack Wilshere following his red card at Old Trafford last weekend, but Mikel Arteta and Santi Carzola should be able to get a job done. Olivier Giroud has been finding life in English football difficult, however if he can show the movement and desire he did for his goal on Tuesday night, he'll be handful for Fulham defence that is guilty of letting in a fair few goals. 

Fulham do pose some danger to Arsenal, form has been pretty good for the West London club. Ditimar Berbatov is fitting in well, seeming close to replicating the form he showed back at Tottenham. Bryan Ruiz, is also a player on form, the Costa Rican appears the sort that isn't afraid to have a pop. Something that could prove to be useful in game where chances might come few and fair between. 

Wenger shall be level headed for today's affair, Fulham are a side that could make it difficult. But, if Arsenal can play similar to what they did in first half in Schalke they should get the vital three points. A typical Fulham away performance, would be welcomed by Wenger.
