Arsenal v Fulham preview

Arsenal report no fresh injury problems ahead of the game.

Midfielder Tomas Rosicky (thigh) could be in contention after

missing out against his old club Borussia Dortmund in midweek,

while Laurent Koscielny is set to continue at right-back in the

absence of Carl Jenkinson (back) and Bacary Sagna (ankle).

Midfielder Ryo Miyaichi (ankle) remains out, as does Jack Wilshere

(ankle) and Kieran Gibbs (hernia). Fulham will be without several

first-team players for the match. Republic of Ireland winger Damien

Duff will miss the game with a problem with his right calf, while

Republic of Ireland team-mate Stephen Kelly is also sidelined with

a thigh injury. Steve Sidwell (hernia), Zdenek Grygera (cruciate),

Orlando Sa (hamstring) and Simon Davies (knee) are also missing,

although John Arne Riise returns after missing last week’s clash at

Sunderland due to the birth of his son. Arsenal (from): Szczesny,
