Desperate to find a route back to the top-four this time around, Arsenal will open their Premier League campaign when they make the trip across London to a returning Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon.

Lifting the Community Shield thanks to a penalties victory against Liverpool at an empty Wembley last month, the Gunners have won their last four contests continuing on from last year and also managed to bag themselves yet another FA Cup trophy.

On the flip side, only managing to squeeze in a single 2-2 draw against League One’s MK Dons in a behind closed doors friendly this summer, Fulham mark their Premier League return knowing they will have to hit the ground running.

However, while the Cottagers might have just about managed to end their top-flight exile thanks to victory over West London rivals Brentford last month, they could be in for a tough step up in class this weekend.

Hit with a 4-1 defeat when they two sides faced off back in January of last year, Arsenal have won each of their last five straight meetings against Fulham and a similar outcome can be found priced at 11/20 with Bet365.

A tough return for Fulham

While Fulham might have really managed to upset the odds as they came past Brentford at an empty Wembley in the play-off final last month, the Cottagers know that they many feel they are destined for a relegation scrap once again this season.

Only managing to squeeze in a single pre-season contest as they prepare for Saturday’s Premier League return, Head Coach Scott Parker knows that his side must find some real defensive resolve if they’re to maintain their top-flight status this time around.

Settling for a 2-2 draw against MK Dons in West London last month, it should be noted that the Cottagers have shipped at least a pair of strikes in their last three contests on home soil.

In for what should be a tricky Premier League opener this weekend, Fulham fans will also be aware that their side have previously shown a string of defensive issues when up against Saturday’s guests.

Including a 5-1 defeat the last time they welcomed Arsenal to Craven Cottage, they have now shipped 14 strikes in just their previous four meetings against the Gunners.

You might be interested to know that Fulham are priced at 8/13 with Betfair to once again ship over 1.5 goals in West London this weekend.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – Arsenal’s MVP

Already lifting both the Community Shield and the FA Cup this summer, the mood in Arsenal’s camp appears to be on the rise and it is no secret that Mikel Arteta has high sights set on mounting a top-four charge this time around.

While fans around the Emirates might have been glad to see Lille defender Gabriel making the move to North London earlier in the month, there is no doubt that the Gunners would have been hugely excited to see Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang still at the club.

Cementing his spot as Arteta’s MVP last season and once again lifting Arsenal’s Golden Boot, the Gabon ace will lead the line on Saturday after what was a stunning return from football’s enforced break.

Bagging both goals in Arsenal’s FA Cup victory against Chelsea last month, the one-time Borussia Dortmund striker also holds what is a rampant record against Saturday’s hosts.

Including finding the net in Arsenal’s 4-1 romp against Fulham last year, Aubameyang has three goals in back-to-back meetings against the Cottagers and will be looking to open his account this weekend.

You might be interested to know that the 29-year-old is priced at 8/11 with Ladbrokes to leave Craven Cottage with his name on the scoresheet.
