Wrong. But these are the games that we must win to sustain a title challenge.
This wont be easy today. It's a London derby and Fulham will be right up for this. Arsenal will need to focus completely and in all honesty every game from now to the end of the season should be like a cup final for Arsenal.
Fulham have bought well in the summer and as Le Boss says they are capable of causing Arsenal major problems. Especially that little git Jimmy Bullard who I met out drinking one night in Bexleyheath. Unfortunately for him at the time I happened to be wearing a full length granny dress.
So Gooners, I'm probably the first cross-dressing Arsenal blogger on the net! ;)
This game follows international games and its important that the players concentrate on Arsenal. It must be difficult for Le boss to plan for a game like this. He never knows who will come back from international duty fit and ready for action.
Van Persie though is fit and ready and today I think he will make a difference to Arsenal. He is fresh and confident after a superb goal for Holland in mid-week. It's vital he remains injury free this season, he is a match winner.
It's Fulham first home game of the season but I think Arsenal's extra quality will prevail. We have problems in the middle of the park but should have enough to see home the result. That's the key area today. Bullard wont let the Arsenal players rest for a second so our midfield will be in for a busy time.
I'd love a repeat of the score line last season at the Cottage but I'll go for one less this time. We were flying then and Fulham were struggling. Fulham wont be in a relegation battle this season but Arsenal will be in the title race. And this is a tight game we will win.
Wrighty's wager: Fulham 0-2 Arsenal.
Keep it Goonerish...................
