Fulham manager Martin Jol admits he never thought Arsenal had a problem after watching their 3-0 away win to Fenerbahce on Wednesday.
Arsenal will visit Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon in what will be their first away game of the Premier League campaign.
There were calls for the manager's head after the opening day defeat to Aston Villa with many fans calling for significant spending to occur before the Fulham tie.
The Gunners silenced their critics with the convincing away win in Turkey but Jol claims he was never convinced that Arsenal were in crisis.
Ahead of tomorrow's tie against Arsenal Jol told reporters: "I played in Turkey a couple of times and it is almost impossible to have a win over there and they did, quite convincingly.
"They played with confidence, they were very sound at the back, in midfield they were very creative, they had pace up front and with their chances they could have scored more goals, so I am not sure if they have got a problem.
"There is not a fear factor in our team about Arsenal, but of course you know their qualities and you have to respect their qualities and try to play your own style.
Jol also heaped praise on Arsenal's players, dampening claims from fans that drastic investment is needed.
Much has been made of Arsenal's inability to sign players in this transfer window but Jol says he has great admiration for the Arsenal midfield in particular.
"If you see Santi Cazorla, he is one of the best players who can play with two feet - he can score with his left and right. (Theo) Walcott with his pace, (Olivier) Giroud is getting better and better, and their midfield - you can't figure out who is the defensive midfielder and who is the offensive midfielder because they rotate all the time."
Fulham will play Arsenal at 12:45 (BST) on Saturday afternoon and will be broadcast live on BT Sport.
