Arsenal vs Fulham: Premier League – LIVE!

Mikel Arteta takes charge of his 100th Premier League fixture in a London derby at Emirates Stadium this evening. The Spaniard celebrates the milestone with his Gunners side currently flying high, leading the early table heading into the weekend after reeling off three consecutive dominant victories to raise expectations among supporters with morale sky-high.

Arsenal have never lost a home match against Fulham and are huge favourites to continue that run here, with Arteta having almost a completely fit squad to choose from. Marco Silva’s visitors were tipped by most to suffer another immediate relegation back to the Championship at the start of the campaign, but they have since changed plenty of minds after a solid start that included a last-gasp win over rivals Brentford and draws against Liverpool and Wolves.

Fulham are likely to find the going much tougher in N7, but in Aleksandar Mitrovic boast a striker who has been every bit as dangerous as Gabriel Jesus so far this term. Follow Arsenal vs Fulham LIVE with Standard Sport’s blog below, featuring expert analysis from Simon Collings at the ground!

Arteta issues Arsenal FFP update after ‘Uefa watchlist’ reports

Prediction: Arsenal to win 3-1

Arsenal are brimming with confidence – with even William Saliba sweeping home stunners from the edge of the area – and you would fancy them against most, especially at home.

Fulham have impressed in their opening fixtures, but are still suspect at the back. The way Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli are buzzing about, you would fancy Arsenal to get a few this weekend.
