Arsenal v Fulham: the injuries and details of all those Fulham victories.

Arsenal v Fulham: the history in videos

By Bulldog Drummond

Just settling down to type up this post and out of the blue Joe Willock scores a cracker of a header for Newcastle.  I think that is his third of the season and it turned out to be the winner to defeat the all conquering West Ham.  At least that is what the media have been calling them.  Let’s hope it’s a good omen.

Arsenal currently have four players on the injury table.   Odegaard is rated as 50% likely to play – which is what he has been for the last game or two.  Ultimately he will return, but we just don’t know when.  But on the other hand the squad did rather well in Europe this week.

The other injuries we know about and although it is just possible that Aubameyang might play I think the most we can expect is a place on the bench.

Player Reason Further Detail Potential Return Condition Status
David Luiz Moreira Marinho Knee Injury Apr 07: “David underwent a small procedure on his right knee. Expected to be back and available for selection in the upcoming weeks.” 01/05/2021 None Ruled Out
Martin Odegaard Ankle/Foot Injury Apr 08: “He wasn’t able to play (vs Slavia Prague) and he will be out I think for the next game or two. But we don’t know yet.” 18/04/2021 Late Fitness Test 50%
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Other Apr 15: “He’s at home, he’s fine. He had two days in hospital, but he’s feeling good now. I think he’ll need a few days to recover from that.” 18/04/2021 Late Fitness Test 25%
Kieran Tierney Knee Injury Apr 07: “Sustained ligament damage. Surgery will not be required and it’s hoped that Kieran will be back in full training within four to six weeks.” No Return Date None Ruled Out

So, nothing new.  Fulham are also on four injuries, but Lookman seems ready to play so I guess really they are on three.

Player Reason Further Detail Potential Return Condition Status
Ademola Lookman Thigh Injury Apr 08: “There’s no real injury news to be fair; we’re all good. We came out of the [Villa] game the other day well, so everything’s fine in terms of that.” 18/04/2021 None 100%
Terence Kongolo Knee Injury Apr 16: “Terence will be out for the season, I’m gutted for him.” No Return Date Currently Being Assessed Ruled Out
Marek Rodak Wrist/Hand Injury Feb 28: “He’s struggling a little bit with a finger injury. He picked it up in training. Too early to know where we are but tomorrow he’s going to see a specialist.” No Return Date None Ruled Out
Tom Cairney Knee Injury Apr 16: “Tom is out on grass, there’s improvement there, but we just don’t know.” No Return Date None Ruled Out

So nothing particularly new there.

Across history Arsenal have won over two thirds of the games they have played against Fulham – a stat one doesn’t seem very often.  In this case it is 40 wins, 10 draws 8 defeats.

Back of the start of the last decade we had a particularly dodgy spell

  1. It’s so typical of the BBC to refer to Lingard as the “on loan Manchester United midfielder” when talking about him scoring a penalty but when Newcastle score the winner it’s simply “Willock”. Well they wouldn’t want to allude to something positive from Arsenal now would they………

  2. Ordinarily, Arsenal are looking a very good odds on bet to beat Fulham in the Premier League match encounter between the duo club sides taking place at the Ems tomorrow Sunday.

    But even with the Gunners are odds on bet to beat the Cottagers. Let me through a word of caution to Mikel Arteta the Arsenal boss and the Gunners team he’ll select to play against the Cottagers to not take beating them for granted.

    For, the Cottagers or Irons could prove rugged to be bent by the Gunners in the game. Thus, making the game difficult for Arsenal to overpower them in the match. And for this possible reason occurring which may occur if Arsenal got complacent in the match.

    The Gunners should therefore fully prepared themselves as if they are going to play a semi-big game at home against Everton in the PL. So as to avoid being caught in by surprise in the game by the Cottagers. And consequently start chasing the game to come back into it if Fulham score.

    The Gunners must not give the Irons any chance in the match to deny them collecting the maximum 3 points that they are setting themselves out to collect in the match tomorrow.

    All things being equal in the Gunners’ camp tomorrow, I predict the current in form Arsenal team will pound the relegation doomed Fulham team 4 nil in the match at fulltime.

    on the side things of latest news that is trending in the 3 domestic English professional football. It has now become official that the all conquering Manchester City football team will not win this season’s domestic treble titles as Chelsea have put paid to their ambition to win it for a record 3 successive time this season. And the question am now asking myself is, would Tottenham Hotspur also stop them from winning the the Carabao Cup for a record 3 straight wins at Wembley this season when the duo big club side meet to battle it out? I hope Spurs will stop them.

  3. As much as I despise all that City stand for being beaten by a Russian oligarchs money laundering outfit pales into insignificance against any thought of the Seven Sisters Middlesex outfit winning silverware of any description.
