Fulham caught fire for a minute at the start of December with back-to-back 5-0 wins over West Ham and Nottingham but they seem to have cooled down after that, losing the next three league games to Newcastle, Burnley, and Bournemouth while registering blanks. This three-game losing streak has the Cottagers rooted in midtable. Marco Silva will be hoping this London derby against their title-contending neighbours will fire up his charges to turn up and he will be banking on the home crowd to play their 12th man role with ferocity.
After pushing Man City all the way to the finish line last season, Arsenal have upped the ante this season and they have been right there in the thick of the title push with the top contenders. Despite a bumpy ride in their recent matches, they looked good in their 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield last time out which saw them remain top of the table at Christmas. Liverpool did dislodge them with their 2-0 win over Burney on Boxing Day but the Gunners have a chance to continue the game of musical chairs by reclaiming the leadership with a win here.
Inasmuch as this is a local derby, the fortunes of the two teams are on opposite poles. The hosts are barely hanging onto midtable and are on a three game losing streak. The visitors have a chance to go back to the top of the mountain with a win. We fancy the Gunners to come out with all guns blazing here and we rae backing them on the Draw No Bet as our main Fulham vs Arsenal prediction for this match

Prediction 3: Over 3.5 Bookings
As expected, derbies bring out the deep-seated feelings from the opponents. We expect enhanced physicality and lots of hostility between these neighbours. The last meeting between them had 9 bookings including the Arsenal gaffer Mikel Arteta and a sending-off for Fulham defender Calvin Bassey for picking up two yellows!
Both teams need a win here, albeit for different reasons. Fulham are trying to avoid getting sucked into relegation territory. The Gunners on the other hand are looking to go back to the summit of the league.
With this in mind, we feel there is value in backing this match to have at least 4 bookings as our final Fulham vs Arsenal prediction here
