Arsenal have a fantastic record against Fulham in the Premier League; however, they have not beaten Fulham in their last two home matches against their London rivals, and perhaps more importantly as far as the game is concerned, Brede Hangeland is back to marshal the Fulham defence.
Fulham have conceded 46 goals in the Premier League - by far the most and Hangeland has missed most of those games. He brings a calming influence to the Fulham defence that often loses concentration and panics when under pressure. You only have to look at the amount of clearances Amorebieta and Senderos make in comparison to the more composed Hangeland to realise what he brings to the team.
This means against Arsenal they are likely to drop deep, as they do this they marginalise the amount of space Arsenal have to thread through balls.
Normally in such matches the dominant team would be expected to pass the defensive team to death and eek out a goal through their tiredness. However, Fulham are good passers of the ball and I would expect them to have a decent percentage. Consequentially, this takes away from Arsenal the amount of chances Arsenal would have.
The break the deadlock Arsenal will look towards Cazorla, his ambidexterity means he can wriggle out of tight spaces and strike than improbable angles. The problem is he has been quite mediocre this season. On the bench, Podolski, Chainberlain and Gnabry have the pace upset Fulham, but only Podolski has the ability to replicate Theo Walcott - an Arsenal win may hinge on how early Wenger brings Podolski on - if he does not start.
