Arsenal’s Premier League title charge takes Mikel Arteta’s side to Fulham this weekend as they aim to keep some distance between themselves and rivals Manchester City.
With City in action against Crystal Palace the day before, Arteta’s charges could find the pressure ramped up even more on the back of a 2-2 Europa League Round of 16 first-leg draw at Sporting CP.
Hosts Fulham have been one of the surprise packages of the Premier League campaign, with Marco Silva’s team seventh in the table after 26 games, with just one defeat in their past five league matches.
Here’s all the key information on the match including kickoff time, live streaming and TV channels, lineups and betting odds.

Fulham vs Arsenal confirmed lineups
Silva was once again without key midfielder Joao Palhinha, as the Portugal international serves the second game of a two-match ban, and Cedric Soares is ineligible to face his parent club due to their loan agreement.
Former Arsenal winger Willian played no part for Fulham as he was not in the squad. Issa Diop dropped to the bench – replaced by Tosin Adarabioyo – and Bobby De Cordova-Reid started.
Fulham starting XI (4-2-3-1): Leno (GK) — Tete, Adarabioyo, Ream, Robinson – Reed, Lukic – De Cordova-Reid, Pereira, Solomon – Mitrovic.
Fulham subs: Rodak (GK), Wickens, Wilson, James, Vinicius, Diop, Francois, Harris, Robinson.
Aaron Ramsdale replaced Matt Turner in goal for Arsenal, while Thomas Partey, Gabriel, Martin Odegaard and Leandro Trossard returned.
The headline development for the visitors was on the bench, where Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus made his long-awaited comeback from injury.
Arsenal starting XI (4-3-3): Ramsdale (GK) — White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko – Odegaard, Partey, Xhaka – Saka, Trossard, Martinelli.
Arsenal subs: Turner (GK), Tierney, Jesus, Smith Rowe, Holding, Tomiyasu, Jorginho, Vieira, Nelson.
Fulham vs Arsenal prediction, odds
Arsenal have recovered from their early February struggles with four consecutive Premier League wins, including key late victories against Aston Villa and Bournemouth.
Despite Fulham’s potential push for Europe, they have stalled slightly of late, and Arsenal’s title drive — plus winning on their past four trips to Craven Cottage — should be enough for an away win.
Prediction: Arsenal to win 1-0
