Predicted Arsenal starting XI vs Fulham
The Gunners are on a roll. With 8 straight wins in 8 games across all competitions, Unai Emery’s men are starting to find their groove after two straight defeats in the first two games in the Premier League.
The Gunners are currently positioned 5th in the points table. As they look to march towards the top, they need to continue their winning streak. Level on points with their arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur, the Gunners would certainly fancy their chances to overtake them as they take on Fulham away at Craven Cottage.
Here is how they are expected to line up against the Cottagers.
With Petr Cech out for a month with a hamstring injury, the Gunners have no choice but to persist with Bernd Leno. The summer signing, who disappointed in his first two games against Vorskla and Brentford, was in inspired form after replacing the injured Cech against Watford, denying Troy Deeney a goal with a spectacular save.
He was immense in the Europa League tie against Qarabag, making a plethora of fine saves. He will start in the goal and is expected to show his quality
The fullbacks pick themselves with the Spaniards, Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal, sure to start. Sead Kolasinac, although returned from injury, might have to do with a place on the bench.
Sokratis is likely to be partnered with Shkodran Mustafi although Rob Holding excelled as the central defender in the absence of Sokratis.
The young Englishman may have to wait for a while to be given a start in the Premier League this term.
