Tip Arsenal - Fulham
Arsenal have found their footing after struggling in recent matches and they’ll be outright favorites when they host Fulham in Round 32 of the Premier League. The Gunners go to this game placed ninth with 45 points, facing 18th placed Fulham who have so far garnered 26 points. Arsenal are coming from a massive 4-0 win over Slavia Prague in the Europa League, which secured them a semi final place. In their last two matches they’ve scored seven goals and kept straight clean sheets. Last time out in the Premier League they blanked bottom side Sheffield United 3-0 and while they are chasing the Europa League title, a finish in the Europa League place in the league will also be key. The Gunners are winless in three straight home matches and come back in inspired form after the two away wins. They’ve scored two or more goals in three of the last five league matches, and failed to score in just one. In their last league match at home, Arsenal were very poor as they lost 3-0 to Liverpool. That was one of the last four home league games that have produced over 2.5 goals and just a clean sheet in five. Arsenal will for the third straight game be without skipper Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, but in Alex Lacazette’s form, the captain won’t be missed, with the Frenchman having scored five goals in the last five matches. The team will also be without defender Kieran Tierney and David Luiz who are injured.
Fulham suffered a 3-0 home loss at the hands of Arsenal on the first day of the season, and go here winless in seven matches against Arsenal. In fact, they’ve lost each of the last six against their hosts. The visitors’ run of form going to this game is also not the best, with four straight losses, which has ensured they stay stuck in the relegation zone. They are six points below 17th placed Newcastle United, having played a game more and their biggest undoing in recent matches has been dropping their guard in the second half. Fulham have lost all their last four after conceding second half goals and it is a dangerous trend going to this game as Arsenal have scored six of their last 11 goals in the second half. Arsenal have also led in both halves in their last two matches so Fulham will need to be at their defensive best going to this game. In their last five matches, Fulham have conceded nine goals; eight of these have come in the second half.
