Match status: 2020/21 Premier League - Matchweek 1
Venue: Craven Cottage (London)
Far from their best last term, Arsenal could only muster an 8th-place league finish, keeping them out of continental football. However, they made up for this disappointment with an impressive FA Cup triumph to add another piece of silverware to the cabinet.

Also, Arteta’s men sent Liverpool sinking last time out in the traditional season curtain-raiser to lift the Community Shield trophy. Heading into the new season on a high, the Gunners should bag all three points versus Fulham come fulltime.

Fulham vs Arsenal Team News

It is still pretty surprising that Fulham managed to earn promotion from the Championship last season, given how unconvincing they were. With lady luck on their side, the Cottagers defied all odds to make a quick return to top-flight football.

Enduring a stop-start campaign, the Cottagers’ PL promotion charge looked in doubt throughout the course of the previous season. Working their tails off, Parker’s men finished fourth on the log to book a ticket to the playoffs.

Their numbers were pretty impressive, garnering a whopping 81 points from 46 games, just two points shy off second-placed West Brom. As the playoffs rolled in, Fulham squeezed through to the final where they took on red-hot Brentford.

Despite being second-best throughout the game, the Lily Whites caused a major upset to ditch their ‘Championship’ status. Joe Bryan was the cream of the crop for Fulham as he singlehandedly led Fulham to victory, registering a brace in extra-time.

Now, Fulham have returned to the Premier League, and will begin their journey with a difficult game versus Arsenal. Truth be told, the fixture schedule could have been kinder to the Cottagers as a clash against the Gunners provides a true test of character.

Against an Arsenal side buzzing from recent title successes, Fulham will have their work cut-out to salvage something positive. Arteta’s men are currently in the form of their lives, with some recent string of victories to their name.

Even though they lifted the FA Cup trophy after outclassing Chelsea in a tense final at Wembley a few months back, the Gunners’ will have been disappointed with their league campaign. Finishing eighth on the log, they were closer to the bottom half of the standings than to the top.

With a new campaign about to kick-off, there is a new-found belief around the club that they can go on to challenge for the Premier League title this term. With Aubameyang in free-scoring form, the Gunners cannot be ruled out from the title hunt.

Needless to say, an opening day victory will be key to Arsenal achieving their ambitions of putting up a strong fight for the title. You can expect a five-star performance from the Gunners in this fixture.
