Fulham v Arsenal: match preview | Football

Two of the better Premier League midfielders from the past 15 years do battle from the dugout, with Scott Parker and Mikel Arteta both hoping new additions settle quickly. Parker signed France goalkeeper Alphonse Areola and the Netherlands right-back Kenny Tete this week and faces a decision on how soon to pitch them in for Fulham. Arteta, usually overstocked with centre-backs, finds himself down to three. William Saliba should make his debut, but Gabriel Magalhães has only recently begun to train with his Arsenal teammates. Further forward, Willian is available to add much-needed experience. Nick Ames
