Arsenal’s quest for a first Premier League title in 19 years takes them to Fulham on Sunday and we’ve put together a 61/1 Bet Builder for the all-London affair.
The Gunners are unbeaten in the last seven meetings with Fulham and should be riding high after their dramatic 3-2 over Bournemouth last time out in the league. The Cottagers head into this fixture still in the mix for Europe, despite Monday’s 3-2 loss to Brentford.
We’ve already made our match predictions for the clash at Craven Cottage, but we’ve also put together a fivefold using Betfair’s Bet Builder to give you a few ideas if you are looking at building your own bet.

Fulham v Arsenal Cheat Sheet
Fulham v Arsenal Ultimate Bet Builder
Both teams to score
These two sides played out a highly entertaining game back in August with Arsenal scoring right at the death to snatch a 2-1 win. That was the fourth time in the last five meetings between the capital clubs that both sides have found the back of the net, a trend that isn’t mutually exclusive to Fulham against Arsenal matches. The net has rippled at both ends in a league-high 16 of Fulham’s 26 top-flight games this season, while both sides have scored in five of Arsenal’s last seven games in all competitions.
Arsenal to win by one goal
Arsenal have stacked up 20 league wins this season, eight of them by a one-goal margin and given how competitive Fulham have been this year, it stands to reason there won’t be much between the teams. The Gunners need to keep up the pace at the top of the Premier League and have an excellent record against Fulham, winning 22 of their previous 31 top-flight meetings. The Cottagers aren’t the same side without the suspended Joao Palhinha but shouldn’t get blown away with a third home loss of the season by a single goal a likely outcome.
Bukayo Saka to score or assist
Since the World Cup, Bukayo Saka has registered a goal or assist in eight of his 15 appearances for Arsenal. Having failed to secure an attacking return in his last two outings, the England international appears due in a game that promises a few goals. Saka has registered a team-high 20 goal involvements in all competitions (11G, 9A), including setting up Martin Odegaard to score against Fulham in the reverse fixture.
Manor Solomon to have 1+ shots on target
With the goals have dried up of late for topscorer Aleksandar Mitrovic, Fulham have needed someone else to step up to the plate and will have been delighted by Manor Solomon’s recent run of goals. The Israeli international has netted in each of his last five games for the Cottagers and should be full of confidence for the visit of an Arsenal side without a clean sheet in four of their last five matches.
Sasa Lukic to be shown a card
Entering the weekend, no side has received more yellow cards than Fulham, with the majority going to the now-suspended Joao Palhinha. With the Portuguese unavailable, someone has to do the dirty work for Fulham and Sasa Lukic seems ready to fill that void. The January signing picked up his first booking in Fulham colours in the 3-2 loss to Brentford on Monday having collected four cautions with former club Torino in the first half of the season. The Serb has committed at least two fouls in his three appearances for Fulham and looks a likely recipient of a card against the league leaders.
