Arsenal vs Fulham Premier League – betting tips and match preview

Arsenal vs Fulham bettingArsenal host Fulham in their last round fixture in the Premier League this season at 16:00 at Emirates Stadium. The Gunners can finish off their season in third place by winning against Fulham today, while Fulham is likely readying themselves for the coming Europa League final.

Terrible season for Arsenal

Going into this final match Arsenal will once again end the season empty-handed after a terrible finish, where they have really stumbled toward the end after winning only one out of the last five games and loosing three as well. Arsene Wenger’s positive and free-minded playing style has yet to produce any real results in recent years, which most leave the football loving French manager somewhat frustrated.

Before today’s London derby, Arsenal have only won two matches out of seven against London teams at Emirates Stadium, which is just not good enough for the premiership title. This said they have done well against Fulham at home, where the Gunners have six wins and two draws in eight matches. At the same time Arsenal must win today, if they are to keep third place and direct qualification for the Champions League.

On the other side Fulham has only one win in the last five matches and have not won any away games against London teams in 29 derby matches. This will likely not be turned around today as their head is surely somewhere else. With the Europa League final against Atletico Madrid just around the corner on Wednesday, they will surely not risk any players and might rest some of their key players for the game at Emirates Stadium.

Looking at today’s game Arsenal is a mayor favorite going into the match, although they are still facing a lot of injury problems. Among the players out are Rosicky, Song, Bendtner, Fabregas, Gallas, Vermaelen, Denilson, Almunia and Ramsey, but with Clichy back and both van Persie and Arshavin on top, their team looks capable today.

No injuries for Fullham

Fulham has no major injury problems with only long-term injured Johnson out. This said they will be likely to save both Zamora and Duff for the game, who is struggling with minor injuries.

The match can played at odds 1.17 for Arsenal to win, 7.00 for a draw and 15.00 for Fulham to win at William Hill Sports.

As mentioned above, Arsenal is a clear favorite for the match and the bookmaker odds reflect this fact more than clearly with only odds 1.17 for Arsenal. However, Arsenal should also be able to beat a somewhat second best Fulham team, which is saving its best players. Our betting tip is to back Arsenal despite the low odds, especially because the Fulham players will have their mind somewhere else and Arsenal really needs the win today.
