Fulham boss Martin Jol has heaped praise on Arsene Wenger and thinks the Frenchman will once again guide Arsenal to the Champions League spots. 

Jol's Fulham were on the wrong end of a 1-0 defeat to the Gunners on Saturday and has spoken out about his admiration for their manager. 

Speaking to the Mail Online Jol said '‘I admire Arsene Wenger, he is an unbelievable manager. He is emotional, he wants to win.’

Jol continued to praise Wenger, who in the past hasn't seen eye to eye with the Dutchman "If you look at this season, they had that unbelievable win at Bayern and they have come back. All the teams like Spurs and Chelsea and Everton have been fighting for that top four spot and Arsenal are in that again.’

Fulham were reduced to ten men on Saturday when Steve Sidwell was given a straight red card for a nasty lunge on Spaniard Mikel Arteta.

The Cottagers' boss was keen to point out he felt his side were not yet safe from the drop, but remained positive on his teams efforts especially after being reduced to ten men.

"It is important that we gain points in next couple of matches. There is always a danger of relaxing so we talk about staying in the process. Hopefully we don’t need the points."

Fulham head to Goodison Park to face Everton on Saturday and boss Jol, will be hoping his side can pick up victory to assure Premier League survival for another season. 

Both teams will be looking to bounce back after disappointing defeats to Arsenal and Sunderland respectively.
