ARS vs FUL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Arsenal will be looking for their only second win in the five league matches when they host relegation-threatened Fulham at the Emirates Stadium, in London, on Tuesday evening (IST).
Unai Emery is now coming under a little bit of pressure as the season turns its head towards the 2nd half. And the recent results and some other factors have a great bearing on that notion.
The former PSG manager was handed the toughest of the start as Gunners were drawn against Manchester City and Chelsea in their first two league games. Not many threw their money at them and the results were widely expected. Arsenal lost the first two league games.
However, after those two games, Emery marshalled his troops and his team went on a 22-game unbeaten streak. All the talk of the transition period was nipped in its bud and the Gunners were even brought into the bracket of title challengers.
But a trip to South Coast changed the scenario as Arsenal saw their unbeaten streak snapped by Southampton, followed by another loss in the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur which ended their adventure in the Carabao Cup.
Gunners dropped more points, this time against Brighton, and also lost 5-1 in the last match against Liverpool.
As a result, the three-time Premier League champions find themselves a huge 16-point adrift of the top of the table, and to make matter worse, Manchester United have won their last three and trimmed down the gap on them to just three points.
A season which is threatening to ruin the very good work the club did in the championship last season and backed it up with vast spending in the summer transfer window on the new recruitments, the last thing everybody associated with the club wants is a drama between the teammates on the football pitch.
Fulham hosted fellow relegation rivals Huddersfield at Craven Cottage in the last match. It really was a six-pointer as a defeat would have left them at the very foot of the table.
The game looked to be heading for a stalemate but the hosts were awarded a penalty in the 82nd minute. Striker Aleksandar Mitrović is the first assigned penalty taker in the team but Aboubakar Kamara snatched the ball away and refused to give to the Serbian. He did take the penalty and missed it.
However, he was saved from the wrath of his manager Claudio Ranieri who in the postmatch interview told that he wanted to kill Kamara when Mitrovic scored in the 91st minute to earn all three points for his team.
The Cottagers are now only one point off safety heading into this match.

ARS vs FUL Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Emery’s selection should be straightforward here considering the injury problems both in the midfield and at the back. But these situations are tailored made for the shoehorned approxch. Xhaka could be the one playing out of his natural position. But he is in our second team only.
Also, we haven’t selected Ramsey on the groumd of rumors linking him to Juventus. But the strikers choose themselves.
Not many changes here but Leno is coming under a huge pressure after his uncanny performances. Czech could start here and that’s why we have gone with Rico.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Arsenal have played 56 times against Fulham coming into this match and have a far superior record, winning a whopping 39 times while they have tasted defeats in only eight matches.
Arsenal are certainly hurt and we back them to win this game.
Prediction 2-0 (at least)
