On Sunday, Arsenal travel to Craven Cottage, on the hunt for a ninth straight victory in all competitions.

Arsenal kept their winning run going in Azerbaijan on Thursday, defeating Qarabag 3-0. Confidence is certainly high at the club right now, even if the performances are yet to prove as impressive as the results.

This weekend they take on Fulham, in their final Premier League match before yet another international break. Let’s have a look at our predicted team for the clash.

There aren’t likely to be many exciting surprises in this area. Petr Cech will miss out with injury, so Bernd Leno will keep his place after another clean sheet on Thursday. Sokratis Papastathopoulos marked his return from injury with a goal against Qarabag, and should return to the Premier League starting eleven on Sunday.

Alongside him, Shkodran Mustafi will start, as he was rested in mid-week. Rob Holding has played well recently, but he’s also played a lot, so this is likely when he’ll get his rest.

Emery looks very likely to stick with Nacho Monreal at left-back and Hector Bellerin at right-back. Monreal only played 45 minutes in Arsenal’s Europa League clash and Bellerin didn’t take part at all. Sead Kolasinac is only just back from injury, so it’s best not to overplay him.
