This weekend we welcome Arsenal to the Cottage
My very first Fulham game was against Arsenal, New Years Day 1966, we won 1-0 and I was hooked! …a repeat result would be more than welcome.
With Fosu-Mensah and Joe Bryan going off injured against Everton, and Alfie Mawson recovering from a back problem, it looks as if we’ll continue to struggle to play a consistent four at the back. At least Tim Ream got the full 90 minutes so he’ll be closer to full ‘match fitness’.
Tom Cairney also got some game time so at least he’ll be back in the squad, I always think we’re better when he’s on the pitch, he really has become our ‘talisman’.
Slaviša Jokanović will have worked the lads hard(er) this week following the 2nd half display against Everton, we’ll need to be fully focused for ALL of the match against an Arsenal side that Unai Emery is getting consistent results, even when they play badly.
remember our game is the early kick-off 12:00 on Sunday
