    Pundits make scoreline prediciton

    Arsenal hero Paul Merson has backed Mikel Arteta's side to defeat Fulham in their highly-anticipated Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon.

    Writing for Sportskeeda, Merson said: "They have to win this game. Fulham have done great but they'll miss Joao Palhinha dearly. Fulham are not playing Arsenal off the pitch in this one.

    "Both teams play expansive football and if the better players rise to the occasion, Arsenal should be able to get the win here, 3-0 Gunners."

    Chris Sutton has predicted a closer encounter with Arsenal edging out Fulham 2-1.
