Fulham vs Arsenal live: Team news, latest score updates and kick off time

Hello and welcome to Craven Cottage as Arsenal kick off their 2020/21 Premier League season with a trip to newly-promoted Fulham.

The Gunners were disappointed with an eighth place finish last season but have been boosted by the momentum built at the end of last term and the beginning of this one.

Mikel Arteta led the side to wins over Manchester City and Chelsea to lift the FA Cup before returning to Wembley to beat Liverpool in the Community Shield.

Aside from the Community Shield, Arsenal have played friendlies against MK Dons and Aston Villa in preparation for the new campaign. This has helped new signings William Saliba and Willian to settle into the club although Gabriel Magalhaes is yet to make his debut.

The chances of that happening will be boosted by the frustrating news that both David Luiz [neck spasm] and Sokratis [calf strain] have been ruled out of trip to Fulham. In other team news, Emi Martinez is not expected to travel following the growing interest in him from Aston Villa and Brighton, as revealed by football.london on Friday [September 11].

We will be providing live updates of the game, plus build-up and confirmed team news, so don’t go anywhere
