Arsenal have taken advantage of a soft early season schedule, winning all three of their fixtures thus far.
They host Fulham this weekend, with Marco Silva’s side having enjoyed a surprising unbeaten run to start the campaign.
Fulham held the Gunners to a 1-1 draw on their last trip to the Emirates Stadium.
Both Teams To Score: Yes
Backing both teams to score for this fixture is really a question of whether Fulham can find the net. Arsenal, tied for the most goals in the Premier League, should have no problem scoring at least once.
Fulham have five goals in three matches, and only four teams (including Arsenal) have clocked more expected goals.
Both teams have scored in three of the last four meetings between these sides, and 10/11 is decent value on that to become four in five.
Anytime Goalscorer: Aleksandar Mitrovic
Aleksandar Mitrovic leads the expected goals charts and after struggling in his two previous Premier League campaigns, the Serbian looks more comfortable under Silva’s leadership. He already has three goals to his name and tormented Liverpool in the season opener.
Arsenal’s defence has been solid so far, but Fulham’s direct attacking play and Mitrovic’s skillset presents something different for William Saliba and Gabriel to deal with.
To Be Shown A Card: Kenny Tete
Already with a couple of cautions to his name, Kenny Tete is at risk of picking up a third at the Emirates. The Dutch full-back has the challenge of marking Gabriel Martinelli, who is a direct dribbler and can force defenders into rash tackles.
Tete averages 3.3 tackles per game (only six players average more). Just 12 players are dribbling more frequently than Martinelli.
This is a key duel in Saturday’s match, and one which could see Tete put under considerable pressure.
This is a good price on the 26-year-old to be shown a card.
