Description: FUL Vs ARS Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: New season of the Premier League commences with new entrants Fulham taking on city rivals Arsenal.
Arsenal endured their worst finish in the Premier League since 1995 after ending in 8th place in the 2019-20 edition of the league last season but the side managed to redeem itself in the tail end of the campaign. With a string of solid results, the side looks to finally be embarking on a new era under the tutelage of Mikel Arteta.
Defeating Chelsea to lift the FA Cup for a record time, Arsenal went onto win their second trophy on the spin by downing Liverpool in the Community Shield subsequently. These two stellar results paired with a neat set of results in their practice encounters allude towards what looks to be a period of uptick for the club this season.
And with Arsenal finally ironing out their defensive issues by roping in a new look backline for the 2020-21 edition of the Premier League, this season is an early anticipated one for the club’s ardent supporters. With Aubameyang set to stay at the club as well, things looks bright for Arsenal in the foreseeable future as they look to finally wrench out of the darkness shrouding them last season.
FUL Vs ARS Dream11 Probable Winner
Back in the league after a hiatus of a year, Fulham will be looking for a change of form this time around. They defeated Brentford in the final of the Championship to return to the league in quick time after having only been shunted from it in the 2018-19 edition.
However, the club’s defence continues to remain a cause of concern. And with them up against an Arsenal side on the uptick, this will be their third successive league opening defeat for them.

He only recently joined Fulham from PSG but Areola should instantly find himself in between the sticks for the club. The side will be looking to stave of Arsenal’s barrage of attacks, something Areola is more than adept at doing.
Arsenal have been hit by a bevy of injuries to their backline with four defenders set to sit this one out for the day. However, new signings should help the side remain unfazed despite those string if injuries with the club finally having names to turn to defensively.
And one such player who should partake in his first ever outing for the club today is William Saliba. Purchased from Lille, he makes a foray into Arsenal’s side having impressed in Ligue 1 to see us opt for him.
Kieran Tierney should be slotted into the three man backline but that doesn’t curb us from moving in for him. He was in sublime touch in the practice encounters, bombarding his way down the park to persistently involve himself in the side’s attacking plays.
CB Rob Holding joins up to wrap up the triad from the side with Arsenal likely to emerge with a cleansheet today.
Having only joined Arsenal from Chelsea after his previous employers refused to hand him a three year extension, Willian looks likely to play today for Arsenal. He managed to pop up with a couple of penalties and assists for Chelsea as the league resumed back in July to see us rope him in.
Granit Xhaka scored last week in the UEFA Nations League to see us opt for him as well from the side while Fulham will also see us imbed a duo from the club. We begin with Anthony Knockaert, someone who the club made a permanent transfer only this window after his involvement in the club’s promotion last season.
Ivan Cavaleiro joins up with the player’s flair set to make life cumbersome for an Arsenal defence always capable off going to sleep and losing its focus.
He was Fulham’s top scorer the last time the club made an appearance in the Premier League and Aleksandar Mitrovic was the club’s leading scorer in the Championship as well. With 26 goals and 3 assists in the foregone edition, he makes a must have pick for us this term.
Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang scored 22 goals for Arsenal last season to emerge their top scorer for the second season running. Partnering him is Eddie Nketiah owing to the goals he’s scored for the English side across the last month.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With 22 goals last term, Aubameyang was always going to captain our side while Eddie is the vice-captain.
