Arsenal vs Fulham live: Kick-off time, team news and how to watch

Arsenal are back in Premier League action when they take on Fulham at the Emirates.

The Gunners head into the game having booked their place in the Europa League semi finals in emphatic style with a 4-0 win over Slavia Prague on Thursday night.

A second brace in as many games from Alexandre Lacazette as well as strikes from Nicolas Pepe and Bukayo Saka were enough to secure victory on the night.

With Mikel Arteta’s side currently seven points off the top 6 and 10 points off the top it seem that winning that competition is their best bet of playing European football next season.

Despite that though Arteta was keen to stress in his press conference that his side will not focus all their attentions on the Europa League while their is still a chance of continental qualification via the league.

“Putting our eggs in one basket would be a big mistake,” he said in his press conference before the game. “I love that phrase. My dad has always told me that since I was 15 years old. We cannot do that.

“The league is really important — there are a lot of points to play for and there have been a lot of changes in recent weeks in terms of the table. We want to be involved right up until the last match and the way to do it is to put a run together ourselves.”
