On to the next one. Another London derby arrives just three days after Arsenal's 2-0 loss to West Ham. The Gunners visit Craven Cottage after having suffered a late home draw to Fulham earlier this season. The Cottagers come into this fixture on the back of two victories and are currently placed 13th. Arsenal will need to return to winning ways to remain in the title hunt.
Against West Ham, Arsenal's ball dominance was largely sterile. The team produced 30 shots and no goals, while the Hammers defense shut the door over and over again. Mikel Arteta will know his team needs to start taking its chances, or else this could turn into another year of "What might have been?"
Marco Silva's Fulham have had an up and down season, but have been dangerous in recent weeks. Old friends Bernd Leno and Alex Iwobi will be hoping to make it three wins on the trot, and in midfield, Joao Palinha versus Declan Rice figures to be a key battle. Fulham will take confidence into the match, having snatched a late draw at the Emirates a few months ago after going down to ten men.
Can Arsenal's attack be more efficient in front of goal? Or will Fulham take even more points off their London rivals? Join us at Dillon's on New Year's Eve as Boston Gooners aim to close 2023 with three points.
