Arsenal face a tricky trip to Fulham as they look to bounce back to winning ways after their recent defeat Premier League defeat.
The Gunners lost their top spot to Liverpool in midweek following their loss to West Ham United. Mikel Arteta’s men were found wanting in a 2-0 home loss.
Arsenal are now two points behind the Reds but a win on Sunday could them return to the top of the summit.
Aside from a penalty shootout victory against Everton in the EFL Cup quarter-finals, Fulham have had nothing to shout about over the festive period, suffering their third consecutive league defeat without scoring at the hands of Bournemouth on Boxing Day, losing 3-0 at the Vitality Stadium.
Only Luton Town (11), Burnley (14) and Sheffield United (14) have lost more games at this stage of the league season than Fulham, who are 13th in the table and six points clear of the bottom three despite having played one more game than 18th-placed Luton.
Arsenal will hope to enter 2024 on a high after dropping points in three of their last four top-flight games.
They should be confident of ending their recent wobble on Sunday, as they have won their last five visits to Craven Cottage, scoring at least three goals in each of the last four, and they have also won their final league game in 12 of the last 16 calendar years.
