The Gunners finished last season in excellent scoring style and we believe there will be goals in their first Premier League game at Craven Cottage this weekend.
Newcomers to the Premier League, Fulham start life again in the top flight this Saturday with a London derby against Arsenal.

The Cottagers won the championship play-off final after missing automatic promotion on the final day of the season, and they face a tough test on their comeback in a big way.

Mikel Arteta's team enjoyed an excellent August, not only lifting the FA Cup, but beating Liverpool to triumph in the Community Shield, and the Gunners will look to maintain that momentum with a victory in the opening weekend.

Fulham vs Arsenal team news
The North Londoners suffered various injuries towards the end of last season and players such as Gabriel Martinelli, Pablo Mari, Shkodran Mustafi and Calum Chambers are still out of the game, while David Luiz could also be missing with a neck problem.

The hosts have no major injury concerns, allowing Scott Parker to pick his stronger side to start the season.
Fulham vs Arsenal Latest Odds
In the 2018/19 campaign, Fulham lost both of their derbies to Arsenal by an aggregate score of 9-2 and bet365 offers the West London side at 5/1 (6.00) to claim three points.

The Gunners, for their part, can fall back 53/100 (1.53), with the tie at 10/3 (4.33).

Fulham vs Arsenal preview
Arsenal recorded their lowest result in the Premier League since 1995 by finishing in eighth place and, while the trophies claimed last month have helped regain some confidence, there are many areas where the team needs to improve.

One of them is the Gunners' away form, with their record of just four wins in 19 games better than just Aston Villa, Watford and Norwich.

However, the North Londoners would hope to claim three points against their newly promoted city rivals, despite the Cottagers notching the most home wins in the Championship last season.

Fulham only failed to score three times in front of their own fans last season and while the move to the Premier League is important, they will be sure to score against an Arsenal side that kept just five clean sheets on the road last season. . .

Fulham vs Arsenal tips and predictions
Both teams' scores are priced at 4/5 (1.80) and it looks like a solid pick, which paid off in the two meetings between these teams in the 2018/19 campaign.
