The knives were out for Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board following the shock defeat at home to Aston Villa last weekend and another Premier League defeat, at Fulham, would certainly go down pretty badly amongst the Gunners faithful.
The Cottagers are 27/10 with 888Sport to secure all three points and it’s 5/2 at BetVictor to finish all square, two wagers that will inevitably attract cash given last Saturday’s debacle at the Emirates Stadium.
However, Arsenal steadied the nerves in midweek, with a 3-0 Champions League triumph against Fenerbahce in Istanbul and with bids seemingly going in for players left, right and centre, the gloom can lift sufficiently for them to nick it in West London, an outcome Betfred chalk up at 23/20.
Nevertheless, coming into the contest on the back of a decent away victory at Sunderland, Fulham have the quality to ensure it’s a tight affair and with that in mind, bet365′s 3/1, marked against a Gunners success by one catches the eye while the more ambitious can tackle a 2-1 away success at 9/1 courtesy of Ladbrokes.
Arsenal to beat Fulham by one – 3/1 (bet365)
