Fulham v Arsenal preview
Moussa Dembele will miss the game with a knee problem, but Fulham
will be boosted by Simon Davies’ return to action after a calf
injury. Chris Baird serves the second game of a two-match ban and
Damien Duff is out with an Achilles injury. Arsenal will hand late
fitness tests to Samir Nasri (hamstring), Abou Diaby (calf) and
Gael Clichy (hamstring) ahead of the game. Tomas Rosicky (thigh),
Johan Djourou (ankle) and Laurent Koscielny (thigh) will also be
assessed, having missed last week’s home defeat by Aston Villa.
Captain Cesc Fabregas remains sidelined by a thigh problem. Fulham
