The ticket to the group stage of the Europa League is still within reach for Fulham, as of the start of the 27th round in the Premier League, but the Cottagers have not won in the last two rounds and at this time they are in the midst of a particularly difficult battle to get back on track, as Craven Cottage hosts London neighbors Arsenal, which leads the table and is on a streak of four victories.
Manor Solomon continued in the home team hoping to extend his hot streak, having scored in all of Fulham's last five games, four of them in the English league.
The black-whites have not been able to beat the Gunners in the last nine meetings between the teams, since January 2012.
On the other side, Martin Odegaard returned to Arsenal's XI after missing the Europa League match against Sporting Lisbon three days ago, as did Kieran Tierney who sits on the bench.
In the attack, Mikel Arteta placed Aleandro Trussar, who returned from injury, at the expense of Rhys Nelson, when the injured Eddie Anketier continues to be absent, but the one who returned to the squad for the first time since the World Cup break is Gabriel Jesus, who recovered from an injury that had sidelined him since November.
