Arsenal predicted line-up v Fulham

Arsenal go into their clash at Fulham on the back of two head-scratching results, with a 3-1 defeat at home to Aston Villa followed by an emphatic victory over Fenerbahce in the Champions League play-off, first leg.

So, the key question is, which side will turn-up for the clash against Fulham on Saturday?

Arsene Wenger will be hoping the later, and will stick with Wojciech Szczesny in goal, despite the Pole taking a nasty blow to the neck area during the win in Turkey.

The back four has not changed in either match, and Bacary Sagna, Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny and Kieran Gibbs will all be expected to keep their place after the midweek clean sheet.

In midfield, Aaron Ramsey appears to have secured a place alongside Jack Wilshere in the absence of Mikel Arteta, whilst the more advanced three positions are again likely to be filled by Theo Walcott, Tomas Rosicky and Santi Cazorla.

Lukas Podolski is an option – most likely for Rosicky – whilst Olivier Giroud will take the central striking role once again.

Despite this being just the second week of the season, Arsenal have little in the way of options, and it could be the same side that started in midweek just over 48 hours after that match.

Arsenal predicted line-up v Fulham:

Szczesny; Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs; Ramsey, Wilshere; Walcott, Cazorla, Rosicky; Giroud.
