Arsenal will try to maintain their perfect mark on Saturday when they host Fulham in a 2022-23 English Premier League match at Emirates Stadium. The Gunners (3-0-0) enter this London derby as the only Premier League team with victories in its first three games after reigning champion Man City drew with Newcastle last weekend. Arsenal bombarded Bournemouth in a 3-0 victory last Saturday to follow up victories against Crystal Palace and Leicester. Fulham have been one of the surprises of the campaign, remaining unbeaten through three games at 1-2-0. The Cottagers' return to the Premier League after one year away started with a stunning 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield three weeks ago. They beat Brentford 3-2 last Saturday but come in with a dismal record against the Gunners. Arsenal had won six in a row before a 1-1 draw at the Emirates in their last meeting in April 2021.

Kickoff in London is set for 12:30 p.m ET. Caesars Sportsbook lists Arsenal as the -290 favorites (risk $290 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line in its latest Arsenal vs. Fulham odds. Fulham are the +800 underdogs, a regulation draw is priced at +410 and the over/under for total goals scored is set at 3.5.

Why you should back Arsenal 

The Gunners have been outstanding on both ends of the pitch so far, scoring a league-high nine goals while yielding an EPL-low two. Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Martinelli and new addition Gabriel Jesus all have scored twice, and Jesus shares the league lead with three assists. The Brazilian's presence has benefited both Odegaard and 21-year-old Martinelli. Odegaard scored both of his goals last week, while Martinelli had one in each of the first two games. Granit Xhaka also continues to play a key role in midfield, chipping in two assists while also hounding opponents.

Arsenal have lost just three times in the 30 meetings between these teams since 2001 (21-6-3). The Cottagers failed to score in 13 of those matches, while the Gunners were kept off the board twice. Fulham has the second-worst possession rate in the league (39.3%), so Arsenal should have little trouble controlling the tempo. The Gunners have allowed 15 shots and six on target, fewest in the league, while totaling 15 shots, tied for third-most. Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale saved five of those six, and one of the two scores against Arsenal was an own goal.

Why you should back Fulham

The Cottagers proved in their opener that they won't back down from a challenge, and they have a legitimate scoring threat who could trouble the Gunners. Aleksandar Mitrovic scored 43 goals in the Championship last year and has answered critics who wondered if he could perform at the highest level. The Serbian has three goals, including the winner in the 90th minute last week. Bobby Decordova-Reid had eight goals and eight assists last season, and he scored just 50 seconds into last week's game. He is more than capable of making defenses pay for mistakes.  

Fulham are strong on the counter-attack and don't allow a ton of shots. They have allowed 31, sixth-fewest in the league, and just nine were on target. They hound any opponent who gets the ball, as they are tied for third in the EPL in pressures (444) and midfielder Joao Palhina ranks third with 68.
