Arsenal are preparing to host Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday, April 18. The Gunners celebrated a 3-0 win over Sheffield United last weekend, while the Cottagers suffered a 1-0 defeat to Wolves.

Currently, Mikel Arteta’s side are 9th with 45 points, while Scott Parker’s side are 18th with 26 points.

Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.

“Fulham’s survival hopes took another blow last weekend with their late defeat by Wolves. I fear the worst for them now.

“Scott Parker’s side could have a lifeline because they play Newcastle on the final day, but that obviously won’t do them any good if they are more than three points behind the Magpies by then and, at the moment, the gap is six.

“Arsenal are a very difficult side to predict, but they put in a real shift against Sheffield United and, if they all work like that again, they will win this one too.”

Lawrenson’s score prediction: 2-0
