Arsenal hit their stride
Arsenal should have a kick in their step following two convincing away wins in a row, and the Gunners are favourites to harness their new-found confidence against Fulham when their London rivals visits the Emirates on Sunday.
Mikel Arteta’s troops fired their way to a routine 3-0 win at bottom club Sheffield United last weekend before they cruised to a hugely impressive 4-0 victory at Slavia Prague in the second-leg of the Europa League quarter-finals.
Slavia – who hadn’t lost a competitive home game since November 2019 – had been tipped to make life awkward for Arsenal, though the Gunners blew their hosts away with a three-goal flurry inside the first 25 minutes.
Relegation looms for Fulham
After threatening to mount a late charge towards safety in February, Fulham’s results have regressed to relegation standard more recently, and a run of five defeats in six assignments has left them in a perilous position.
Scott Parker’s side are six points adrift of Newcastle in 17th having played one more game than the Magpies, and with just handful of fixtures left to contest, the Cottagers’ brief stay in the Premier League looks like ending soon.
Arsenal to claim the points
Manchester City and Liverpool are the only teams to have beaten Arsenal on their own patch in the last nine Premier League fixtures at the Emirates Stadium and the Gunners can enjoy more success in North London on Sunday.
Buoyed by their fine performance in Czechia on Thursday, Arsenal will wield a combination of confidence and quality that Fulham could find tough to absorb, and the Gunners look a superb price to claim three points as a result.
Arsenal outclassed Fulham (3-0) when the teams last squared-off in September, and with the Cottagers’ form on the slide (five defeats in six), bettors are advised to stick with the Gunners on Sunday.
Our 2-0 correct score prediction tips Arsenal to keep their third clean sheet in as many games against a Fulham frontline that failed to notch in four of their last seven league assignments.
