Former Arsenal target Mark Schwarzer said he’s raring and ready to defeat the Gunners on Sunday, as Fulham look to equal their record high placing on the Barclays Premier League table of seventh.
Schwarzer attempted to make a move to Arsenal at the start of the season, but the deal fell through, leaving the goalkeeper temporarily out of favour at Fulham.
Now though, Schwarzer has committed to the Cottagers, and while he was flattered by the possibility of a move to Arsenal, the Australian international wants to finish the season with Fulham on a high note.
“To be linked with Arsenal is an honour but we are hoping to finish a good season really well,” Schwarzer said.
“If we can equal our record seventh place of 2009 it would be fantastic.”
Schwarzer also heralded Bobby Zamora's contribution to the West London side, and said the Fulham striker will be even better next season if he can avoid injury.
“It’s always concern when someone breaks a leg or a ankle as was the case with Bobby,” Schwarzer said.
“I think in his first full start though he scored two goals against Blackpool and he’s a vitally important player to the side.
“I hope he can continue the form he’s showed. If he stays injury free, he’ll be a massive player for Fulham.”
