Arsenal are back in action this weekend as they look to continue their impressive winning run of form.

The Gunners kicked off their 2018-19 season with back-to-back defeats but have since racked up eight wins in a row.

Unai Emery’s side travelled to Azerbaijan during the week where they defeated Qarabag FK by a comfortable 3-0 scoreline.

Fulham meanwhile have just one victory to their names this season and sit in 17th spot after seven games.

Arsenal Team News:

Star playmaker Mesut Ozil was rested for the majority of Arsenal’s mid-week clash. The 29-year-old is expected to return to Emery’s starting eleven on Sunday.

Meanwhile, first-choice keeper Petr Cech is out with a thigh injury he picked up last weekend.

Laurent Koscielny and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are also ruled out with injuries.

Star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed the Qarabag fixture with an illness. The Gabon international is still a minor doubt for the Fulham clash.

Arsenal have no suspensions going into Sunday afternoon’s encounter.
