The teams are out for Arsenal’s clash with Fulham, where we will be looking to close the gap on eighth place.
A win today will see the Gunners close to within two points of Everton, and three points of Tottenham, ahead of our clash with the former this coming Friday.
It was already confirmed that we would be without David Luiz, Kieran Tierney, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Martin Odegaard today, so there wasn’t any huge shocks in today’s selection.
With the knowledge of the missing players, we had predicted the following XI earlier today:
Bellerin Holding Gabriel Cedric
Pepe Smith Rowe Martinelli
As you can see, we were mostly right, but it was difficult to predict Arteta’s thinking, especially without knowing which players were 100% after Thursday night’s victory.
Below is the confirmed starting XI for today’s clash.
