Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Arsenal will be aiming to keep their 100% record intact when they take on Fulham at their Emirates Stadium. The Gunners made a flying start to the season, with the team impressing in a 3-0 win over Bournemouth, and they are seen as hot favourites to win Saturday’s local derby. Norway international, who scored a brace at the weekend, will be the man to watch in the home team, while Reiss Nelson continues to miss out with injury.
The Cottagers, on the other hand, did well to beat Brentford 3-2 at the weekend, and they must be high on spirits ahead of yet another local derby. Aleksandar Mitrovic and Co, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and given Arsenal’s brilliant start to the season, home win should definitely be considered. Both Solomon and Wilson are sidelined with injuries for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Alexandre Lacazette):
Alexandre Lacazette is a hometown boy of Lyon, a powerful striker who went through the youth ranks of the French side to become one of the most important players for Les Gones. The 25-year-old forward was also a member of all France national team selections becoming a European champion at the age of 19 by scoring the winner in the final against Spain.
This goal gave him a reputation of a big game player, one he went on to uphold on various occasions at his club. Lacazette is a hard working forward an accomplished finisher of the ball able to score from different positions. The most prolific striker in his side and among the top ones in the Ligue 1, Alexandre Lacazette scored more than 20 league goals last two seasons on a trot.
Constantly linked with a move away from Lyon, Alexandre Lacazette refuses to speak about anything other than his football and is leaving all the talk to the football pitch.
Highlighted Team (Fulham):
Fulham are a club from London that play in the Premier League. The capital club dropped to the English second tier at the end of the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign after failing to impress in the elite competition, but managed to return in season 2018/2019.
Fulham were founded in 1879 and they play their home matches at Craven Cottage. Fulham are the oldest-established club from the English capital to have played in the top flight.
Fulham finished the 2008/2009 Premier League campaign in seventh place in the standings and that is considered the team’s biggest success, speaking of their participation in the Premier League.
The Cottagers played in the Europa League twice and they did well to reach the FA Cup final in 1975, but they were beaten by their local rivals West Ham United in the title game (0-2). Chelsea are regarded as Fulham’s bitter rivals as well and the two teams take on each other in the North London derby.
