Date: Sunday, 7th October 2018
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).
The cottagers are in bad shape and are suffering from poor performance. They have not won any of their four EPL fixtures. Moreover, their home form is superb since they have managed to remain undefeated in the last 4 games in all competitions. Actually, they have won 3 matches and settled for a 1-1 draw in their last home game against Watford.
Arsenal is at the moment enjoying an unbeaten run in their last 5 EPL games. As they travel to the Craven Cottage, they are definitely motivated and will be aiming to make this tally to five unbeaten matches. Additionally, Arsenal has been drawing at halftime and winning at full time in their last 5 EPL matches and will not stop at anything to do the same in this one.
