It’s the whole London affair on Sunday as Premier League leaders Arsenal prepare to make the short trip to Fulham.
The hosts lost the battle for the capital last time out as Brentford ran out 3-2, leaving Fulham on the fringes of the European spots.
On the other hand, Arsenal are aiming for a fifth consecutive domestic win as they look to improve their five-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the standings.
Here’s everything you need to know about this.

Fulham team news
Joao Balinha remains suspended and will complete his two-match ban here, but there could be a return to Fulham’s midfield as Tom Cairney cements his return from a foot injury.
Levin Kurzawa and Neskens Kebano are both injured and right-back Cedric Soares is unable to play against his father’s team.
(4-2-3-1): lino. Titi, Diop, Riam, Robinson; Reed, Lukic; Willian; Pereira, Suleiman; Mitrovic
Arsenal team news
Gabriel Jesus is hoping to make the bench here in what could be a secondary boost to Arsenal’s attacking crisis. Leandro Trossard and Eddie Nketiah are both sidelined with injury, so Gabriel Martinelli is likely to remain at striker.
Martin Odegaard and Kieran Tierney missed the midweek game due to illness but both are expected to recover in time for this game.
Mohamed Elneny is still abroad.
(4-3-3): Ramsdell. White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Partey, Odegaard, Shaka; Saka, Martinelli, Nelson
Arsenal were not convincing defensively and could face Aleksandar Mitrovic and the in-form Manor Solomon. However, in Palhinha’s absence, Fulham’s backline will also be a bit weak, so this could be something of a delight for the neutrals.
Mikel Arteta’s side seem to be winning matches without being at their best – the tag of champions, as cliché goes – and they may need to rely on that momentum to navigate this game.
Expect goals from both sides, but Arsenal should be able to come away with three points.
Prediction: Fulham 1-2 Arsenal
