Arsenal are set to play host to Fulham at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday for their latest English Premier League fixture.

Arsenal come into this game on the back of a 3-0 win over Sheffield United last Sunday in their most recent Premier League game. A brace from French forward Alexandre Lacazette and a goal from young Brazilian attacker Gabriel Martinelli ensured victory for Mikel Arteta's Arsenal.

Fulham, on the other hand, lost 1-0 to Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolverhampton Wanderers last Saturday at Craven Cottage. A late second-half goal from Spanish winger Adama Traore secured the win for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Arsenal vs Fulham Prediction

Arsenal have endured a disappointing season in the Premier League, and are currently 9th in the league table. Their best chance to play Champions League football next season is to ensure that they win the Europa League.

Fulham, on the other hand, are 18th in the Premier League. They are six points behind 17th-placed Newcastle United, who have played a game less. Scott Parker's side have played some good football, but have now lost their last four league games.

Arsenal should be able to triumph here.

Prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Fulham
