Fulham are having a fantastic season. Roy Hodgson has done a great job there and made Fulham into a side that is really hard to beat.
Against expectations Fulham have taken points off the top teams in the Premiership this campaign. How can we Gooners forget that!
People have often remarked on how bad Arsenal were at Craven Cottage earlier in the season during our 1-0 defeat there. Yes we were terrible, but Fulham played well and deserved their win. They should take a lot of credit for that.
That's why I don't want to sound disrespectful when I say Fulham could be in trouble today but I really believe that Arsenal will start to score goals, and lots of them, sooner rather than later.
The signs are there. We have been beginning to create plenty of chances during our last few matches. A 1-0 win over Roma could have easily been 4 or even 5-0.
We played with so much pace against Roma. It suited us and put them under pressure. We need to do that today against Fulham. Put them under the cosh early and try to get that vital early goal.
I think an early goal could be key. If we get a quick goal the Emirates and the players will be buzzing and confidence will be high.
Someone is due a hiding from Arsenal. It's been a while since I've looked at a scoreline and thought to myself, "have that!"
Fulham are difficult opponents but I think an early goal, plenty of Arsenal pressure and Arsenal wanting to atone for that defeat early in the season could result in Fulham being in trouble today.
Today, we may see plenty of Arsenal goals. I can't wait.
Keep it Goonerish..............
