Looking to extend their impressive unbeaten run, Arsenal travel to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham this weekend.

The Gunners must look to replicate a similar result to the one that Chelsea had on Wednesday night, whereas Fulham will be hoping to bounce back from that defeat. 

Here we look at two players from either side that could have a huge impact on the game this weekend.

Fulham 

Dimitar Berbatov 

Moving from Manchester to London - has seen the former United man hit 13 Premier League goals for the Cottagers.

His counter threat could give the Gunners' defence a torrid afternoon, coupled with his text-book finishes, he will be a real threat to Wenger's sides.

Also an Astute figure, the Bulgarian knows when to time his runs and make key passes. He could be crucial to Fulham's hopes of defeating their north London counterparts.

Bryan Ruiz 

When played in his preferred position - behind the Striker, he is deadly. The Costa Rica born attacking midfielder has been the fulcrum of the Cottagers midfield.

He dictates play, and has been of an helping hand to fellow team-mate Berbatov when going forward. Although, he isn't such a good finisher, his key passes and dribbling make him a dangerous asset for Martin Jol's side.

Arsenal

Santi Cazorla 

It's no doubt that the Spanish maestro has been the major catalyst to Arsenal's impressive season - scoring 12 goals and hitting eight assists in the process.

His ambidexterity advantage has made very creative in attacking situations. Not also forgetting his, deadly through balls and long shots. If given enough space, Cazorla is sure to inflict damages. Fulham must be wary of this.

Aaron Ramsey 

Many might not actually understand the importance of having this welshman in the Gunners midfield, but his hard-work has always rejuvenated the whole team. 

Coming back from a career threatening injury - Ramsey has worked very hard to keep his place in the starting line-up, despite having rough patches after coming back from injury. He is sure going to be a worrying figure when the two sides meet.
