Every player has contributed to them delivering a solid defensive display this Premier League season. Arsenal’s goal scoring stats this season are among the best in the League (9). This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Martin Odegaard (2), Gabriel Jesus (2), and Gabriel Martinelli (2).

Fulham will be buoyant, following a 3-2 home win against Brentford in their last fixture.
