Teams News: Fulham vs Arsenal

As Arsenal undertake their first football match of 2012, it`s a trip to Fulham`s Craven Cottage that stands between us, and three points.

With only 1 defeat in our last 13 league matches we`re still on a bit of a roll despite a disappointing result against Wolves the day after Boxing day, however injuries are starting to take their toll along the back line.

Thomas Vermaelen is the latest victim as Francis Coquelin comes in to make up the numbers at the back accompanying Bacary Sagna, Carl Jenkinson, Andre Santos and Kieran Gibbs in the physio room.

Andre Arshavin`s beautiful assists for the winner against QPR wasn`t enough to keep him in the side as he Russian makes way for Gervinho.

Need to be more clinical in the final third, as ever.

You have to ask. Does Walcott know who he's trying to pass to half the time he tries a cross? Frustrating player.

Need more fight in midfield. Were not competing for the loose ball anymore. As for the sending off, what a joke. Lee Probert has been Fulham's 12th man.

I could see this result coming a mile off. Too much reliance on RvP. The rest of the forward players not producing enough quality where it counts. Song has also really gone of the boil. He was becoming a leader, but seems to have regressed in the last few games. That is why I don't think we'll finish top 4 this season. Awful.
