Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger warned his side not to expect an easy ride when they face Fulham on Saturday afternoon.
Despite the fact that Chelsea got as close to an easy ride as is possible in the Premier League, the Gunners tactician warned his players to expect a test.
Arsenal have won five of their last six matches and have pulled themselves right back into contention for a top four place in the Premier League.
Wenger has never failed to deliver Champions League football while Arsenal manager and a win at Craven Cottage will be crucial if that is to continue.
Three points would put them back into third with rivals Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur heading into tough encounters on Sunday – the Blues travel to Liverpool, while Spurs welcome Manchester City to White Hart Lane.
Wenger revealed one or two issues ahead of the Fulham clash; Lukasz Fabianski has a cracked rib and so will miss out again.
There will be fitness tests for Santo Cazorla, Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain but Wenger was confident they would be fine, though there is a bigger doubt over Tomas Rosicky.
GMF have taken a bash at predicting the Arsenal line up for the Fulham clash – here are the results…
Wojciech Szczesny; Kieran Gibbs, Bacary Sagna, Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny; Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla; Theo Walcott, Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud.
