Arsenal warned about one Fulham player ahead of weekend match

Arsenal will work hard to ensure their 100 per cent record remains intact after they face Fulham in the Premier League this weekend.

Mikel Arteta’s side has become the leading club in the EPL in this new season and their three wins from three have come in dominating fashion.

But they are facing a Fulham side that has also made a very bright start to life back in the Premier League.

The Cottagers have collected five points from three matches and they also remain unbeaten in the league.

One man that is making their start to the season great is Aleksandar Mitrović.

After scoring a record-breaking 43 goals from 44 league matches in the Championship last season, he has 3 goals from 3 league games in this campaign.

The Premier League website warns Arsenal about the dangers he poses.

They report he is good on the ground and similarly a menace in the air.

He would be a handful for Arsenal’s defenders, and the battle will be an interesting one to watch.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Mitrovic is yet to prove his class in the Premier League, but his current manager, Marco Silva, seems to have unlocked greatness in the Serbian.

William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes have done well as defensive partners so far, and fans will hope they neutralise his threat in this game.

Alfie and Rob are back with the Just Arsenal Show and today they discuss three players who are seemingly on their way out.

  1. He is key to everything they do. Stop him right from midfield. If you allow them to play, they will score. If you confiscate the ball and remain alert all the time and not some of the time, it’s possible to do well.
    Liverpool tested it.

    Arteta usually allows players to get worn out before he makes changes at the end of the game. Inject fresh blood earlier

    1. @Atangana
      Very sound tactics. We cut off to the supply to him and it makes it easier to nullify his threat. Control the midfield and we control the game.

  2. Very hard man and excellent in the air. Needs someone to consistently watch him at corners and free kicks.

  3. The more experienced premier league team will prevail in this local derby.

    Nothing should be taken for granted though, they could actually pull off a scare

  4. Mitrovic is a real menace if he is not controlled and can pose problems for Arsenal. I would prefer Tomiyasu to White as RB to control Mitrovic and also hope Saliba can hold him off. It wont be an easy game but I expect Arsenal to win.

    1. If we don’t want Mitrovic/Fulham to score,we need to stop the fullbacks from crossing the ball to him, that’s where most of his goals come from.i believe this is a game which would suit KT better than Zinchenko but I can’t see him being dropped.
