Arsenal are taking on Fulham this afternoon in a Premier League meeting at the Emirates which has taken on even greater significance after yesterday’s results. Newcastle’s surprise win over high-flying West Ham catapulted the Magpies to 15th in the table, above Brighton and Burnley, and left Fulham seven points from safety. With only six games left to play including this one, Scott Parker’s side cannot afford to be picky about where they earn points and will be giving everything to shock the Gunners.

Arsenal come into the game in some form, having bounced back from that dire 3-0 defeat at Liverpool with wins over Sheffield United and Slavia Prague. Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe have made productive returns from injury while Alexandre Lacazette appears to be flourishing up front without club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the pitch, who is suffering with malaria. Mikel Arteta will have one eye on the Europa League but with no midweek game coming up, he will be focused on pushing the Gunners up the table from their disappointing spot in ninth place.
