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
