Arsenal vs Fulham
English Premier League
Date: Sunday 18th April 2021
Kick off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium (London).
This London derby will have Arsenal as the clear odds on favourites to get all three points as the Gunners reach a good moment in their troubled season.
Last weekend Mikel Arteta’s side beat Sheffield United 3-0 to move up to 9th place and with 45 points they are only 4 points behind rivals Tottenham. There will be motivation within the side to pass them and try to finish as high as possible now.
There was more good news for Arsenal in midweek as they qualified for the semi-finals of the Europa League after destroying Slavia Prague 4-0 in the 2nd leg quarter final. Arsenal won 5-1 on aggregate and that score in the 2nd leg was impressive given that it came away from home.
Fulham did have hope for survival but that looks slim now as their form has dropped and they have slipped 6 points behind safety. The Cottagers have lost their last 4 games in a row and last weekend they were defeated by Wolves losing 1-0.
The problem for Scott Parker’s side is that they have played a game more than the teams around them and relegation looks very much on the cards for them.
Arsenal vs Fulham: Head to Head
- The last time the teams met here was in 2019 when Arsenal won 4-1.
- Arsenal have scored 12 goals past Fulham in the last 3 meetings.
- Fulham have not beaten Arsenal since 2012.
- There is a 70% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
Arsenal vs Fulham: Prediction
This should be one of the most predictable results of the weekend and we expect a good win for the home side. Arsenal are a great price to win this game which looks like a mistake, and we should take this on.
Arsenal are in a good moment and have lots of motivation to win and the manager wants the club to keep up their winning style and change of character.
There looks like no chance for Fulham here, Arsenal are simply miles better and have proven that in recent weeks, and we expect not only a home win but a very good result too.
